COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- College Station Police say a man stabbed his roommate after taking illicit drugs early Tuesday morning. 

20 year old John Lawrence Powers was arrested at a home on the 3200 block of Toni Court.   Police responded to a call there around 2 a.m. when they got a call for an unknown traumatic injury.  

When they got there, they found Powers' roommate, suffering from multiple stab wounds.  The victim was taken to the hospital, and was listed in stable condition.  

Police say Powers and the victim are roommates, and took narcotics together earlier in the night.  At some point, Powers apparently got a knife and stabbed the victim multiple times while under the influence of those drugs. 

He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and taken to the Brazos County Jail and will face up to a $10,000 fine.
