MOULTON -- A north Alabama man has been accused of stabbing a friend for returning from a store with the wrong brand of beer.
The Lawrence County Sheriff's Department charged 64-year-old Grady "Skip" Wilburn Dollar with first-degree assault for allegedly stabbing Mickey Joe Hill.
Lawrence County Sheriff Gene Mitchell said the 37-year-old Hill was in good condition at Huntsville Hospital after being stabbed at Dollar's rural Lawrence County home.
The sheriff said Thursday that Dollar had given Hill money to buy the beer, but Hill got the wrong kind.
Dollar was released from jail on $5,000 bail.
