HICKORY, KY (KFVS) - An Eddyville man was arrested after allegedly assaulting his brother.

According to Kentucky State Police, on Jan. 20, Jacob Lawrence, 26, entered his brother's home at 24 Cedar Street in Eddyville.

Police say Lawrence and his brother, Greg Wilson, then got into a verbal argument that escalated into a physical fight.

They say Lawrence pulled a knife from his pocket and cut Wilson during the struggle. Lawrence was hit in the head with a shotgun and left the home.

According to police, Lawrence was found a short time later at the Caldwell County Hospital in Princeton where he was seeking medical attention.

After receiving treatment, Lawrence was arrested for Assault 2nd Degree and lodged in the Caldwell County Jail.

Wilson was treated at his home by the Lyon County EMS.

The case remains under investigation by Trooper Lewie Dodd.
