PRESCOTT, AZ - A Rimrock man is accused of assaulting two of his brothers with a knife and a beer bottle at a northern Arizona campground.
Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say 23-year-old Derrick Lovaasen was released on $2,500 bond after being charged with aggravated domestic violence and aggravated assault.
They say Lovaasen and his two brothers -- ages 30 and 21 -- were drinking in Beaver Creek when they began arguing.
Authorities say Lovaasen allegedly used a butterfly-style knife to stab his older brother several times.
He also allegedly smashed a nearly full 40-ounce beer bottle against his older brother's head and then used the broken bottle neck to cut his younger sibling's shoulder.
Sheriff's officials say the older brother needed 200 stitches at a hospital and the younger sibling had 50 stitches.
