Chattanooga: Sister accuses brother of stabbing her boyfriend

A man has been charged with aggravated assault and possession of drug paraphernalia after a stabbing incident yesterday at 7626 Boriss Drive, Chattanooga Police say.

Michelle Harrison told police her 27-year-old brother, William Harrison, kicked in her bedroom door around 4 a.m. and attacked her boyfriend, Marin Macias, with a knife and screwdriver.

Michelle said her brother stabbed Macias in the back and cut his head.

Macias wrestled William down until police arrived, Sgt. Jerri Weary of the Chattanooga Police said.

Police found drug paraphernalia near William at the scene, she said.

"[He] admitted that the paraphernalia was his and that he had been smoking all night," Weary said in a news release. "He further stated that he was trying to kill Macias but didn’t say why."

Macias was transported to Erlanger Hospital where he was treated and released for non-life threatening injuries, police say.

When will we learn? Why do Americans need screwdrivers? Haven't screwdrivers caused enough damage?

As a child I found my father's screwdriver and while playing with said screwdriver in tightening a screw on my bicycle it slipped and poked my thumb. I still bear that physical and mental scar.

Protect our children—ban screwdrivers!

Wow, what an insightful comment... I'd certainly like to meet the guy that managed to kill 6 people in the middle of the day at a public gathering using a screwdriver.

Nobody wants to ban guns, but extended magazines and weapons that are easily modifiable to be automatic... particularly those that have parts sold with a wink and a nod with a warning you shouldn't actually use what you just purchased... make it much easier for random idiot gunman #1(Loughner/Klebold/Harris) to take out a bunch of people with minimal effort and risk to themselves.

The guy in Arizona was stopped when he went to reload, as have quite a few other spree killers. I say that anyone who needs 30 rounds before reloading is either an incredibly lazy shooter at the range, or planning on doing a lot of damage.

I think Screw drivers need to be kept from the hands of retarded people like this.

I have a extensive screwdriver collection.

I can reach a screwdriver from anywhere in the house.

I always carry a screwdriver.

I'll give up my screwdriver when they pry it from my cold dead electrified hand!
