An arm wrestling match between two men took a bitter turn when the guy who lost stabbed the winner in the upper left thigh. The victim was stabbed twice.

Alberto Malaga was charged with one count of aggravated battery in the stabbing, and was held by Arlington Heights police. Apparently, the men were drinking and arm wrestling with each other. And after Malaga lost, he knocked a beer out of the competitor’s hand and stabbed him.
