Personal Hygiene Issue Sparks Brawl

Fort Worth, Texas (AP) -- Police say personal hygiene apparently led to a bloody brawl outside a Texas tavern.

Fort Worth investigators say a fight broke out near the Tumbleweeds Sports Bar Thursday after a customer thought another had failed to wash his hands after using the bathroom.

Witnesses say the customer confronted the man and two of his friends, calling them names and telling them they were dirty. Witnesses say the man threatened to "slash their throats."

Police say the man then hid in a shrub outside of the bar and charged the group as they left.

Authorities say one man is hospitalized with stab wounds.

A 27-year-old suspect has been arrested and is facing possible aggravated assault charges.
