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.

    Vigilant101 is right, I've seen fights break out over a Ipod, a guy/girl, and a simple bumper damage call.

    That's just about as idiotic as they come. Unless his mental faculties are compromised he deserves everything he gets, which should be punishment to the fullest extent of the law.

    I have to agree with what DDemlong said. Sometimes I wonder what people are thinking when they do stupid stuff like this.

    People, what the hell? Flat screen TVs or damn PS3s, what the hell is wrong with people? It's just stuff people, crap you'll probably never need anyway or care less about a few months away unless you're serious about the stuff. I remember hearing about someone that got shot in the head for a PS3 when they came out, if you are that desperatre you aren't a serious gamer in the first place, just an opportunist for a crack hit In my opinion. Like this person had to lose their life so someone could get a hit off something. I understand you LEOs even more now, bless you all.
