SAN ANTONIO - A 30-year-old man was arrested Wednesday night in connection with the stabbing of a Bexar County sheriff's deputy.

The deputy responded at 11:08 p.m. to a home in the 21000 block of Pearl Harvest in North Bexar County for a call of a son who had assaulted his father, sheriff's officials said. 

The deputy tried to talk to the son, Gary Brandon Hamre, but the two got involved in a struggle, and that's when Hamre stabbed the deputy, officials said.
