Bail was set at $30,000 for a man accused of stabbing an acquaintance in the leg Saturday night outside a west Olympia bar.
Lacey resident Jeramy Lee Beausoleil, 32, appeared Monday in Thurston County Superior Court and faces charges of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon and felony harassment. Arraignment is set for Dec. 22.
According to charging documents, the victim had agreed to sell Beausoleil some prescription painkillers and the two met in the parking lot of O’Malley’s at Westside Lanes, 2200 Garfield Ave. NW.
The victim told police he got into Beausoleil’s vehicle and gave him the pills. That’s when Beausoleil pulled a knife and stabbed the victim in the leg, according to documents. The two argued and struggled over the knife while Beausoleil told the victim he would kill him.

The victim was transported to Providence St. Peter Hospital for treatment. Prosecutors said Monday that the victim will survive.
When contacted by law enforcement, Beausoleil denied being involved in any altercation and said he had been home all night, according to documents.
At Monday’s hearing, Judge Anne Hirsch noted that Beausoleil’s criminal history includes a conviction for first-degree assault in 2006.
