A fight in the 700 block of E. 5th St. early in the morning of February 25 led to the arrest of a Sedalia man who is accused of pulling a knife on several people.

Sedalia Police say that the suspect, 40-year-old James E. Stark, was found complaining of what he believed to be a broken nose. Witnesses told police that Stark had come to the residence looking for a fight, and when they tried to calm him down he pulled a knife. After the knife was dropped, Stark allegedly started swinging at the residents, and was punched by one of them.

Stark was taken to Bothwell Regional Health Center for treatment, and was then taken to the Pettis County Jail.
