LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) - Authorities have reduced charges against a Lawrence man charged with stabbing another man after losing a game of dominoes.

Wanderlis Ceballos was originally charged with assault with intent to murder for allegedly stabbing the 30-year-old victim in the back three times in the early morning hours of June 29.

The Eagle-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1qRgbPB ) reports that at a dangerousness hearing Monday, the charge was reduced to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and he was released on $5,000 bail.

Investigators say the 26-year-old Ceballos was angry because the victim’s team had beaten his team at dominoes.

Ceballos and the victim agreed to settle their dispute over the game by engaging in a fistfight. Ceballos allegedly pulled the knife during the fight.

Ceballos denied the charges.
