CLAYPOOL HILL, Va. – Two men were arrested Thanksgiving night at a southwest Virginia Wal-Mart after one stabbed the other over a parking space.

Christopher Jackson, 35, and Ronnie Sharp, 61, allegedly got into a fight at around 6:30 p.m. Thursday after arriving at the store to shop, according to NBC affiliate WVVA.

The confrontation reportedly started out as a small verbal argument over a parking space but then turned physical when Sharp threatened Jackson with a rifle.

The station reports Sharp then alegedly stabbed Jackson in the arm. The cut was reportedly so deep that it reached the bone, police said.

Jackson was taken to the hospital for treatment then transported to jail on charges of disorderly conduct, assault and battery. Sharp was arrested at the scene of the incident on charges of malicious wounding and brandishing a firearm, according to WVVA.

Both men were released on a $5,000 bond.
