The man charged in a road-rage fight that left another driver wounded turned himself in to deputies Thursday night, authorities said.
Steven Charles Wilson, 37, surrendered to officers around 10:30 p.m. on a charge of aggravated assault, Knox County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Ashley Haynes said. Authorities said Wilson slashed the other driver, Kenneth M. Romines, with a carpet knife the day before after an afternoon of tailgating along Broadway and Maynardville Highway.
The fight happened around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday after Wilson and Romines, 39, had a disagreement on the road. They pulled over the Wendy’s restaurant, 6918 Maynardville Highway, in the Halls community and confronted each other, KCSO Deputy Matt Sexton wrote in a report.
During the fight, Romines “was cut several times by the suspect with a folding carpet knife,” Sexton wrote.
Authorities found the weapon at the scene of the fight.
Romines was treated at St. Mary’s Medical Center North in Powell.
He couldn’t be reached for comment Thursday night.
