From Abilene Police Department spokesman George Spindler:

At about 2:05 a.m. Friday, Officers Cory Davis and Jeremy Nell responded to an injured subject call at a residence in the 1600 block of North Mockingbird Lane. A male victim had notified APD dispatch from his residence and told them he had been stabbed in the torso. Officers arrived at scene and contacted the involved parties. The preliminary investigation revealed that the victim was stabbed by his female girlfriend. The victim suffered knife wounds to his chest and was transported to a local hospital in stable condition. The female suspect was arrested for Aggravated Assault Family Violence. This investigation continues.

At about 5:10 p.m. Thursday, Officer Jessica Watkins conducted a records check on a license plate. The check revealed the vehicle was in the system as stolen. The motorist was contacted in the 700 block of Barrow Street. Officer Watkins detained the driver and two passengers. The preliminary investigation revealed that the vehicle had been reported as stolen earlier that day after the owner realized her vehicle keys and her vehicle were missing. The owner told officers that the vehicle was taken without her permission. The female driver was arrested for felony theft and a passenger was arrested for two municipal arrest warrants. The stolen vehicle was released to the owner. This investigation continues.

At about 11:30 p.m. Thursday, Officer Mack Garrett contacted a motorist in the 600 block of Ambler Avenue for a traffic violation; the motorist disregarded a blinking red traffic signal at the intersection of Ambler and North Treadaway Boulevard and nearly struck Officer Garrett’s patrol vehicle. Before Officer Garrett could contact the driver at his door, the driver exited his vehicle and that’s when Officer Garrett observed that the driver was unsteady on his feet. During the preliminary investigation the driver also displayed other indicators of intoxication and Officer Garrett could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the driver. The driver conducted standard field sobriety tests which he performed poorly. A records check revealed the driver had one previous conviction for DWI. A search of the vehicle revealed an open container of alcohol and three firearms. The firearms were all pistols, were located in the front seat and were loaded. The driver was arrested and taken to county jail where he provided breath samples. Breath samples taken showed the driver’s BAC was 0.180 and 0.180. The driver was arrested for an enhanced misdemeanor offense charge of DWI (Class A) and for misdemeanor Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon.
