ROGERSVILLE — A Hawkins County woman allegedly stabbed her first cousin multiple times with a pair of scissors during a fight that occurred Tuesday night after she told him she wanted a relationship with him, and did not want to be “a booty call.”

Erica Francis Wilson, 21, 593 Manis Road, Rogersville, told the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday night that she’d  had an argument with her first cousin, Jesse Elijah Brooks, 32, 6529 Rt. 66, Rogersville around 11 p.m. over the status of their relationship.

The two had admittedly been drinking alcohol. Wilson consumed a quarter bottle of Everclear, and Brooks consumed a half bottle of Everclear.

“Ms. Wilson stated that during the argument Mr. Brooks began to touch her suggestively and stated that ‘he wanted her’,” Deputy Matthew Pendleton stated in his report.

According to Wilson’s account, it was at that moment she stated that she wanted a relationship and didn’t want to be “a booty call.”

That made Brooks “irate,” Wilson told the HCSO, and the argument escalated until Brooks allegedly knocked her to the floor and punched her face and neck.

Wilson told the HCSO she retrieved a pair of scissors from a coffee table. She said Brooks attacked her again, at which time she “cut him.”

According to the HCSO report, Brooks suffered a puncture wound to his neck and lacerations to his neck, face, arms and back.

Wilson stated that during the scissor attack Brooks reportedly grabbed her and tried to get the scissors. Wilson broke free, went outside and called 911.

Pendleton stated in his report he observed lacerations to Wilson’s hands, as well as red marks on her neck.

Pendleton added that Brooks didn’t make a statement except to say he didn’t want to press charges and he only wanted Wilson to leave.

Pendleton stated in his report he couldn’t determine who was the primary aggressor.

Both were arrested and charged with aggravated domestic assault, after which Brooks received medical attention for his injuries.

Wilson was released from the Hawkins County Jail Wednesday on $4,000 bond and is scheduled for arraignment Nov. 23 in Hawkins County Sessions Court.

As of Thursday Brooks remained in jail on $4,000 bond with arraignment set for Nov. 21.
