HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a Prince George’s County man has been charged in the stabbing of a Hagerstown man over the weekend.

Police say Brian Cornelius Driver, 34, of Suitland was charged with attempted second-degree murder, reckless
endangerment and assault in the stabbing Saturday on Harmon Avenue, between Church and Bethel streets.

Hagerstown Police Sgt. Stewart Heckman tells the Herald-Mail of Hagerstown newspaper that Driver and the victim got into an argument after Driver began talking to the victim’s wife. Heckman says the victim was stabbed in the neck with
a short knife, and suffered a non-life-threatening injury.

Police say Driver left the scene on foot, but was found nearby a short time later.

Driver was being held on a $500,000 bond Sunday at the Washington County Detention Center.
