A Wadmalaw Island man accused of stabbing his father in an argument over money was arrested Tuesday.
Michael Mack III, 33, of Dunwell Road is charged with attempted murder.
Michael Mack Jr., 56, was stabbed Saturday at the house where he lives with his wife and son, according to the incident report from the Charleston County Sheriff's Office.
The father and son got into an argument over money and the son stabbed his father in the upper left chest, the mother told deputies. The son called for help but left before deputies arrived at the house, taking the knife with him, according to the incident report. The father was sitting in a chair in a blood-soaked shirt when deputies arrived and was taken to a hospital, according to the report.
The younger Mack was being held in the Charleston County jail Tuesday.
