A Casper man is denying he stabbed another person.
Thirty-three year old Ira Goff, has pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault, assault and battery, and interfering with a peace officer, after being involved in a fight outside a bar on May 20th.
A witness told police Goff was in a scuffle with another person at the bar that afternoon, and a third person separated the two.
Investigators say Goff then started taunting the other person, and stabbed him when he approached Goff.
