PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) - A fight between two men in Pass Christian early Saturday morning ended with one of them stabbed in the head.

Authorities say Remington Steele and Darrell Johnson began fighting on Saucier Avenue when Johnson stabbed Steele just above his eye.

A sergeant with the Pass Christian Police Department says the blade penetrated almost three and a half inches into Steele's skull. Steele was taken to Gulfport Memorial, where the knife was removed. His condition is unknown at this time.

Johnson was arrested for aggravated assault and bond was set at 150 thousand dollars.
