Montgomery Co. Sheriff's deputy stabbed in the arm


The Montgomery County Sheriff's Department is investigating a stabbing involving one of its own officers.

Sheriff's office officials say deputies were serving a probate call on West Jefferson Davis Avenue and had a warrant to arrest an elderly lady. They say the elderly woman inside the home refused to come out and when deputies tried to go in the house, she stabbed one in the arm.

"We have people that go out and pick up, serve probate orders and every now and then you run into somebody that refuses to go and we have to forcibly bring them in. And, this is one of those times," Chief Deputy Derrick Cunningham said. "Families, they can't deal with them so they go down, get an order, we come out and we'll take them in for em."

No decision has been released on whether the woman will face charges in the stabbing.
