NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Investigators say a 54-year-old woman used two knives to stab her ex-boyfriend following an argument about the band the Eagles.

The North Charleston Police Department charged Vernett Sheree Bader with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.

On Monday night, officers responded to an apartment on Brossy Circle in reference to an assault with a knife. When officers arrived they found Bader standing outside of the apartment, while the victim, a 64-year-old man, was inside the home.

Police reported that the victim was suffering from a cut to his arm, elbow and small cuts to his hand which were caused by Bader stabbing the victim with a knife.

The victim said it all started when he was listening to the band the Eagles. According to the victim, Bader told him she did not want to listen to the Eagles, and an argument started. Authorities say when the victim told Bader to "shut up," Bader went into the kitchen and grabbed a 14-inch bread knife and started to swing it at the victim.

The victim said Bader cut him on his left arm near his bicep and on his right arm near his elbow. Authorities say the victim and another man were able to take the knife away after restraining Bader.

Authorities say Bader then ran out and returned to the house armed with another knife. Police say Bader then cut the victim several times on his hand. The victim told officers that he ran into the bathroom and locked the door.

The victim told police Bader was his ex-girlfriend who he was currently living with.

Bader said that she stabbed the victim because he was choking her. Officers say they did not see any marks or injuries on Bader that would confirm her story.

A witness also told police that they were all watching television and listening to music when Bader got mad, grabbed a fan and attempted to strike the victim with it.
