An argument between two family members resulted in one grabbing a knife and threatening suicide.
On Sept. 12, Cherokee County Sheriff's Deputy Rick Ward was dispatched to South Timber Trail to investigate a domestic assault and battery. A 17-year-old said she got into an argument with a family member, and it turned physical. The girl claimed the relative slapped her in the chest and struck her. She showed deputies the area where she said she was hit, but they didn't see any redness or marks. The girl said the family member grabbed a knife and threatened to harm herself. Deputies questioned others in the house at the time of the argument, and they said the woman did grab a knife and held it to herself. The woman admitted to grabbing a knife and that she told the 17-year-old she would kill herself. The woman said she would never act on that impulse, though, and she realized she made a bad decision.
