Domestic Dispute Involves Cement Block, Knife

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.
