According to an arrest affidavit, a witness told police she saw an altercation between Hiebert and another man Nov. 17. The witness told police Hiebert pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim before leaving in a truck. That witness was later able to identify Hiebert in a photo lineup, the affidavit stated. Hiebert was arrested Sunday and is in Bell County Jail. Potvin set his bail at $100,000.
