A warrant states Daryl Wilson, Sr. told detectives that his son would not return his truck, so he and his wife blocked in the vehicle at the motel. The paperwork alleges Wilson’s wife and his son’s girlfriend got into an altercation, during which Wilson grabbed his son’s girlfriend by the neck and threw her to the ground.

Police said Wilson’s son knocked him to the ground in defense of his girlfriend, leading Wilson to get back up and stab his son in the stomach.

Wilson was arrested and booked into the Metro jail Monday morning on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond was set at $50,000.
