Rowans had already fled when police arrived a little after 2:45 p.m. He was arrested at his home, where he denied stabbing the man. It wasn’t clear what the argument was over.
He spent the remainder of Thanksgiving locked up on charges of intimidation and battery committed with a deadly weapon, court records show. He was held on $750 bond, according to the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office.
