One man was arrested and another hospitalized Monday after a stabbing at the Planet Lockwood strip club.

Just after midnight, Yellowstone County sheriff’s deputies responded to the club where a 26-year-old man had been stabbed in the arm, according to a news release from Sheriff Mike Linder.

Benjamin Michael Fettkether, 31, was charged with assault with a weapon, a felony. Justice of the Peace David A. Carter set bond at $5,000 during an initial appearance in Yellowstone County Justice Court on Monday.

Witnesses told police that Fettkether was trying to pick fights outside the club, according to court documents. One fight led to a man getting stabbed in the arm with a folding blade.

The man was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a deep laceration on his bicep, court documents state.

Police found Fettkether's address through probation and parole. They went to the Johnson Lane home and found him hiding outside between a horse trailer and a fence, documents state.

Fettkether is scheduled to appear in Yellowstone County District Court on March 22. He will be placed on GPS monitoring if released and isn't allowed to go near Planet Lockwood.
