On 10-3-13 at approximately 5:20 pm, State Police troopers responded to a report of a domestic assault involving a screwdriver as a weapon. Troopers were dispatched to an address in Rolland Township, Isabella County, where a 51 year old male had been stabbed with a screwdriver by his 50 year old live-in girlfriend. The two have shared a residence since July, 2013.
The two had been in an argument over finances, when the female subject attempted to remove the registration plate from a vehicle in the yard. The vehicle is in her name, but is driven by the male. The male attempted to prevent the removal of the plate from the vehicle by grabbing her hair and wrestling the screwdriver from the female. She then used another screwdriver to stab him in the arm and side.
The female subject was lodged in the Isabella County Jail on an aggravated assault charge, and for allowing an unlicensed/suspended person to drive. The male subject was not arrested at the scene, but troopers are seeking charges for domestic assault and driving while license suspended. The male refused medical treatment and the scene, stating that he would seek his own treatment.
