Dispute Leads To Aggravated Assault Charge

A Putnam County woman has been charged with aggravated assault after allegedly throwing a glass flower pot at another woman and then trying to use a piece of the broken glass to slash the woman's face. Sheriff's Deputy Jeremy Nash says it happened at a home on Brown Ridge Road, north of Baxter Monday afternoon when 27-year-old Christina Lynn Goolsby arrived to pick up some items that belonged to her. The victim told Nash that Goolsby's property had been placed outside the front door because she did not want Goolsby coming into the house. That led to an argument in which Goolsby allegedly threw the flower pot and several other items into the home. The victim says that she used her left arm to block her face when Goolsby tried to cut her, and the deputy says he observed several lacerations on her arm. Goolsby had left the scene by the time authorities arrived, but was later arrested with her bond set at $2,500.
