IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Police say an eastern Iowa man threatened his roommate with a knife after trying to use a plate as weapon.
   North Liberty police arrested 18-year-old Chad Sharkey Tuesday night after responding to a report about a fight in progress. Sharkey was found outside a residence and told police an argument with his roommate had turned physical.
   Police say Sharkey punched his roommate in the face and attempted to break a plate to use as a weapon. He's accused of then threatening his roommate with a 3-inch pocket knife.
   The roommate suffered swelling and pain to his left eye.
   Sharkey faces charges of assault causing bodily injury and assault while displaying a weapon. Online records do not list an attorney.
