An eastern Idaho man has been charged with aggravated battery after police said he stabbed a roommate during a dispute over a missing lawnmower.

Fifty-one-year-old Darrell K. Smith was arrested Wednesday in Idaho Falls. Police Department spokeswoman Joelyn Hansen said officers were called to Smith's apartment Wednesday afternoon after a witness called police.

Hansen says Smith and the victim were arguing because the victim left Smith's lawnmower out and it disappeared. She said the victim in the case was stabbed twice in the stomach. Police did not release the victim's name or his condition, but said he was transported to a nearby hospital.

Smith has not yet entered a plea.
