MONROE, Mich. – A drunk argument early Tuesday morning at a home in Monroe led to a 21-year-old man being stabbed with a kitchen knife, officials said.
Monroe police were called around 1 a.m. Tuesday, June 27, to a home in the 900 block of East Front Street in Monroe.
Officers spoke to a 30-year-old man and a 21-year-old man. Both were “highly intoxicated,” according to authorities.

Medical officials were called to the scene and treated the man for his injury. He refused further treatment.
