NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A man is behind bars for allegedly stabbing his neighbor in the chest.

The victim's niece said Jerry Cowden confronted them outside their home on Largo Drive in Antioch on Tuesday night and demanded money.

She claimed Cowden poured beer all over her and then started getting violent.

She said Cowden pushed her and put her in a choke-hold and her uncle ran over to defend her.

The woman's uncle was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. There is no word on his condition.

Cowden, who is charged with aggravated assault, claims the woman stole from him.
