FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

A Florence man was charged with a felony offense following a fight on Friday night.

Florence police said they responded to a fight call on the 100 block of Cox Creek Parkway. Officers were told that 21-year-old Michael Steven Schaut, Jr, of Florence and the victim had been involved in an ongoing dispute that turned dangerous.

Witnesses said Schaut produced a knife and began stabbing the vinyl top of a vehicle, trying to gain access to those inside.

Police said Schaut was taken into custody at the scene and charged with felony throwing or shooting deadly or dangerous missiles into an occupied vehicle. The offense was allowed to be a felony per Alabama Code because the vehicle was occupied, police reported.

Schaut was booked into the Lauderdale County Detention Center, where he posted bond and was released.
