A war­rant has been is­sued for a woman in con­nc­tion with an in­ci­dent in which a man’s lip was cut with a knife.

A re­port from the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice Depart­ment said an of­fi­cer re­sponded to a home on West Street just af­ter mid­night Tues­day in ref­er­ence to an as­sault. The of­fi­cer spoke with a man who re­port­edly was “bleed­ing pro­fusely from his lip.”

Ac­cord­ing to the re­port, the man told the of­fi­cer that he was walk­ing up the street and en­coun­tered a fe­male he had been “talk­ing to.” The woman re­port­edly be­gan ar­gu­ing with the man about him see­ing his “baby’s mother.”

“( He) stated that quickly dur­ing the ar­gu­ment ( the woman) pro­duced a bent- up knife and cut his face. ( He) stated that when he told ( the woman) he was go­ing to some­one’s house to call the po­lice, that ( she) took off her head wrap, threw the knife down and took off run­ning,” the re­port stated.

EMS re­port­edly ar­rived at the scene shortly af­ter the in­ci­dent, and upon see­ing the depth of the man’s lac­er­a­tion, EMS per­son­nel said he would need to be trans­ported to Grady Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal in At­lanta to see a plas­tic sur­geon.

While the vic­tim was be­ing treated by EMS, the of­fi­cer re­port­edly showed him a book­ing photo of the sus­pect..

“That’s her,” the vic­tim said.

(He) stated that when he told (the woman) he was go­ing to some­one’s house to call the po­lice, that (she) took off her head wrap, threw the knife down and took off run­ning.

The woman’s head wrap and the knife pos­si­bly used in the as­sault man were found on West Street and taken as ev­i­dence. A war­rant has been taken out for ag­gra­vated bat­tery. The woman also has an ac­tive war­rant from the Newton County Sher­iff ’s Of­fice for fail­ure to ap­pear.

Traf­fic stop leads to drug charges

Two men were ar­rested on drug charges re­cently af­ter a deputy no­ticed a ve­hi­cle with no head­lights on.

A re­port from the Newton County Sher­iff ’s Of­fice said a deputy pa­trolling in the area of By­pass and Flat Shoals roads on Jan. 17 no­ticed a white truck trav­el­ing east on the By­pass Road with­out its head­lights on. The re­port said the only lights on were one fog light and two park­ing lights.

The deputy con­ducted a traf­fic stop on the ve­hi­cle, and In­ves­ti­ga­tor Michael Cun­ning­ham said he ap­proached the ve­hi­cle and smelled a strong odor of mar­i­juana.

“He con­ducted a search of the ve­hi­cle and found mar­i­juana and sus­pected metham­phetamine. Sub­se­quently, both of the two gen­tle­men were ar­rested,” Cun­ning­ham said.

Thomas Parker, 25, and Daniel Hol­brook, 49, of Cov­ing­ton, face charges in­clud­ing pos­ses­sion of mar­i­juana less than an ounce, pos­ses­sion of metham­phetamine, and pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia.

NHS stu­dent faces dis­or­derly con­duct charge

A stu­dent re­ported to a deputy that her boyfriend mis­treated her at school last Fri­day.

A re­port said around 9 a. m., a stu­dent at the Newton Col­lege and Ca­reer Academy asked a deputy with the Newton County Sher­iff ’s Of­fice to talk.

The stu­dent told the deputy that while she was at Newton High School pre­par­ing to go to the NCCA, she had been ar­gu­ing with her boyfriend and he pushed her in the back and the face. She told the deputy she wanted to press charges.
