Police: Eagles tunes lead to bread knife brawl

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A North Charleston woman was arrested late Monday night after she got into an argument that led to a stabbing -- and it all started with classic rock.

According to a North Charleston police report, 54-year-old Vernett Bader was charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature after officers showed up at her Brossy Circle home to investigate reports of an assault with a knife.

When officers arrived, Bader was standing outside the house with another man who told police the victim had several cuts on his arms and hands. Bader caused all of the cuts, the report states.

When police talked to the victim, he said he had been listening to The Eagles when Bader told him that she did not want to hear the classic rock band's songs. So the man told her to shut up, the report states.

Bader responded by allegedly getting a 14-inch serrated bread knife and swung it at the man repeatedly, the report states. The victim wrestled the knife away from Bader, but she came back with another knife before the victim could run and lock himself in the bathroom.

The victim said he and Bader used to date, but said while the relationship had ended they still lived together, the report states.{}

According to Bader, the victim was choking her which led to her getting a knife. However, officers did not see any hand prints on Bader and the neighbor corroborated the victim's story. Officers noted in the report that everyone involved in the altercation was intoxicated at the time of the assault.

The report did not detail which Eagles songs were being played.

As a result, Bader was arrested and taken to the Al Cannon Detention Center.
