LAS VEGAS—Las Vegas police say they arrested a 22-year-old man in the fatal stabbing of another man during an argument over a flat-screen television.

Records show Mathew Beard was being held Friday at the Clark County jail following his arrest late Thursday at an apartment complex south of the Las Vegas Strip.

The identity of the dead man was not immediately made public by the Clark County coroner.

Police say the victim was found at the bottom of a staircase after having been stabbed in the lower back during an argument about 7:30 p.m. at the Manor Suites extended-stay hotel.

He was pronounced dead a short time later at University Medical Center.

    I'll bet there's an underlying story here that we aren't hearing about just yet. At least, I hope this wasn't just about a TV ......

    Quite frankly there is absolutely nothing on television worth getting that excited about. Sounds like somebody needs some Anger Management therapy huh?

    A bit of vague reporting on this one. But is a really stupid shame to kill someone over a stinking T.V.

    How stupid, I had a tweaker assume I was some undercover cop at a Jewel because of the way I was dressed. Apparently the guy wanted to get into a fight even after I told him I'm not. Bunch of crazy/retarded people out there folks. Watch your backs!!
