RIVERVIEW – A fight turned into a felony Feb. 22 when Daniel Phillip Naesz, 51, of Riverview, allegedly stabbed a 33-year-old man in the leg when a disagreement escalated into a physical altercation.

Police Chief Clifford Rosebohm said the disagreement between the men turned into a fight on the floor. The victim later said he felt a burning sensation on the back of his leg during the fight, and did not realize he had been stabbed until he became aware of his extensive bleeding. He reportedly drove himself to a hospital.

Neasz was arrested soon afterward at his residence in the 17000 block of Beford. He was arraigned Feb. 24 before an out-county judge on a charge of assault to commit great bodily harm less than murder, a 10-year felony. Bond was set at $10,000, 10 percent, which Neasz posted.

He faces a preliminary examination of the evidence against him at 9 a.m. March 15 in the 27th District Court in Wyandotte.
