Sheriff: Woman Slashes Father Of Her Kids While Riding Shotgun Down 277
SAN ANGELO, TX-- A woman was arrested for slashing the father of her kids with a knife on Wednesday.
Lindsay Lopez, 29, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
On the morning of the 16th, Lopez and her ex had been fighting about their relationship, and their children. The two then left the home, where they had the argument, and went to take the children to school.
When they had arrived back at the home the fight continued. They then left the house, and headed out of town on U.S. 277 southbound towards Christoval.
This is when the fight escalated and Lopez began hitting and kicking the victim while he was driving, the sheriff's office said. Lopez then proceeded to pull out a pocket knife and started swinging it towards him.
The victim put his arm in the way, to block the knife, leaving a cut down the backside of his arm. He then pulled over near the intersection of U.S. 277 and Ratliff Road. Lopez then got out of the vehicle, while the victim called the police.
According to an affidavit, The Tom Green County Sheriff's Office found the knife 50 yards away from the vehicle, and the cut on the victims arm was consistent with a defensive stab wound.
The victim informed police that this wasn't the first time something like this had happened. He told them about an incident four years ago where she had stabbed him after a dispute.
Lopez's bond was set at $50,000.
