Waddell told police that he, Byrd and others were “eating pizza and drinking” earlier that evening at 374 Jack Atkins Road, Rockmart. Byrd allegedly began confronting other people at the residence when Waddell asked him to leave.
Waddell said Byrd refused to leave the Jack Atkins Road home. Their confrontation became physical and Byrd tackled the victim. As they fought on the floor, Byrd allegedly revealed a knife and stabbed Waddell in the leg, and the two were separated.
Later that evening, Officer Angie Barnette located Byrd inside the home and placed him under arrest for aggravated assault.
