Brian ErnestEUGENE, Ore. — A man was formally charged in the Lane County Jail court Monday afternoon for stabbing another man near the Saturday Market this weekend.

Brian Frederick Ernest was arraigned on assault and unlawful use of a weapon charges.

The Eugene Police Department says Ernest stabbed a man he didn’t know near the Free Speech Plaza on Saturday.

But some of Ernest’s family members who were in the courtroom Monday say that’s not true and that the two men did know each other.

He’ll be back in court on Aug. 4.
