A TORNADO WATCH has been issued for Leon, Milam, and Robertson Counties until 5:00am Monday morning. A line of strong to severe thunderstorms is on its way to the Brazos Valley and should arrive between 2 and 3 am. Heavy rain, frequent lightning, and winds above 50 mph are our main concerns. However, an isolated tornado, especially in our northern counties, cannot be ruled out.
An apparent dispute over late rent in Brazos County may have made one woman mad enough to try and knock her tenant's block off with a block.
Debra Mackey was arrested late Tuesday night after fleeing her FM 974 residence. Authorities believe Mackey got into a heated exchange with a man staying with her when she reportedly tossed a cinder block at him. Mackey is then accused of stabbing him in the back with a knife, though the injury was only superficial.
The tenant was treated and released at St. Joseph.
Mackey is out of Brazos County Jail as of Wednesday afternoon on $20,000 bond and faces aggravated assault charges.
