A Goodlettsville man is facing charges stemming from the June 28 fatal stabbing outside a Hermitage bar — an incident that he claimed was self-defense, Metro Police said Thursday.
Leo Knowles, 30, is facing second-degree murder charges in the stabbing death of James Pigue, 53, outside Double E Bar & Grill at 4957 Lebanon Pike.
At the time of the incident, police said Pigue and Knowles got into a verbal argument inside the bar. Knowles was asked to leave, and Pigue followed him out. They got into a fight outside that ended when Pigue was stabbed.
Pigue, of Templewood Drive, was transported to Summit Medical Center where he died.
Knowles is free on $50,000 bond.
