He can't hear you now

What an absolutely insignificant matter to get into a fight and to lose your life over.

San Antonio police on Sunday night arrested a man accused of stabbing his roommate with a butcher knife in a fight over a cell phone last month.

Anthony Josef Crout, 21, is being held in Bexar County Jail on one count of aggravated robbery and one count of possession of less than two ounces of marijuana. A judge set bail at $76,000, according to records.

Crout and a 50-year-old man reportedly lived together as a couple in an apartment in the 200 block of Broadway Street, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. Around 7 p.m. on June 1, the couple began to argue after Crout took the man's cell phone and was “conducting narcotics transactions on it,” the affidavit states. Crout refused to return it, despite his roommate's requests, and then used a butcher knife from the kitchen to stab the man in the head, officials said.
