TAZEWELL COUNTY, Va. -

Two men are facing charges in connection with a fight in the parking lot of Walmart in Claypool Hill, Virginia.

According to NBC station WVVA, The Tazewell County Sheriff's Office says the men- 61-year-old Ronnie Sharp, of Russell County, and 35-year-old Christopher Jackson, of Tazewell County- were arguing over a parking space.

The sheriff says during the fight, Sharp is accused of cutting Jackson in the arm with a knife.  Sharp is now charged with malicious wounding and brandishing a firearm, because police say he also had a rifle.

Jackson was treated at the hospital before being taken to jail.  He's charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery.

Both men have bonded out of the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Tazewell.
