Woman arrested after allegedly cutting man, driving impaired with 3-year-old
SALYERSVILLE – A woman is in jail after allegedly cutting a man, as well as driving impaired with a three-year-old in the vehicle.
According to the arrest citation, on Saturday night police were called to a possible domestic dispute on Falcon Road. When Salyersville Police Department Officer Jeremiah Watson arrived, the victim was sitting on the porch of the home and bleeding from his right hand. He told police that Natasha D. Marshall, 35, of Salyersville, had a knife and he was trying to take it from her.
Reportedly, the two had been drinking before the domestic dispute took place. The victim said that when he started bleeding, Marshall took the three-year-old child and left in a vehicle.
While Watson was talking with the victim, Marshall pulled back in at the home. The child was sitting in the front seat, not in the proper child safety seat in the backseat of the van, according to the police report.
After smelling alcohol, Watson had Marshall to step out of the vehicle, and she was unsteady on her feet and her speech was slurred. He could smell a strong presence of alcohol on her breath, according to the citation. She was also covered in the victim’s blood, according to law enforcement.
Marshall was placed under arrest and she told police the man had injured himself punching items in the home.
The victim told law enforcement Marshall came at him with a knife and he grabbed the knife, trying to get it away from her in order to keep her from hurting herself or him, and that it had cut him on the right hand. He was treated by EMS at the scene and refused further medical treatment.
Marshall had several prior charges when law enforcement ran her ID, and was categorized as “armed and dangerous” out of Illinois, where she is wanted, but the warrant is in-state pickup only.
Her van had expired California plates and no insurance.
Early on October 6, she was transported to Paul B. Hall for a chemical test and medical clearance, and taken to the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center, where she is being held at press time.
Marshall is currently facing the following charges: operating a motor vehicle under the influence, no registration plates, no registration receipt, booster seat violations, endangering the welfare of a minor, second-degree assault and failure to wear seatbelts.
A preliminary hearing is slated for her felony case on October 14 at 9:15 a.m. at the Magoffin County Justice Center.
