MARINGOUIN- A man at the Iberville Parish Sheriff's substation in Maringouin stabbed himself in the chest Tuesday morning, but is expected to survive, authorities said.

The man, whose name was not released, was at the substation around 10 a.m. because a complaint related to a domestic dispute was being filed against him, Chief Deputy Stephen Engolio said.

An argument erupted just before he stabbed himself.

The man was air lifted to the hospital.

He still may face charges related to the domestic complaint.
