The brawl started when Ramirez saw another man touch his wife and ask her to dance. Ramirez reacted by stabbing the victim with a knife in his stomach and cutting his arms.
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said the two young men had acted like testosterone-fueled animals.
“These are relatively young people -- testosterone is still running rampant in them,” Wagstaffe said. “It turned into a couple of wild male elk in mating season locking horns -- except for one party, the horns were a knife.”
