Dallas county deputy Sheriff Jacob Crain investigated a stabbing incident on July 9,  at 912 Dallas County Road 208. In his report, Crain said when he arrived at the scene he saw a man who identified himself as Edward Craig sitting on the front porch. Upon entering the house Crain found Larry Craig laying on the couch bleeding from his lower left abdominal area. Larry stated his brother Edward had stabbed him multiple times.

Edward was immediately detained by Crain and a search began for the knife used in the stabbing. Crain found the knife in Edward's bedroom and it appeared to have blood on it. Crain said it appeared Edward was very intoxicated. An ambulance arrived around 8:20 and Larry was transported to Baptist Medical Center in Arkadelphia for treatment. Edward was taken to Dallas County Detention Center and was booked on 2nd degree battery.
