Man arrested in assault
Chad Blake Williams

     A night out at a bar ended badly when one man cut another man on the hand with a knife.
     Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson said deputies responded Wednesday night to a Bruiser Circle residence and found the victim suffering from a cut to the back of his hand.
     Deputies questioned several people at the scene and learned several roommates had “been out drinking at a bar before the incident,” he said. They all returned home and one man, Chad Blake Williams, 21, Quail Valley Drive, Leesburg, began arguing with the victim.
      During the verbal argument, Williams grabbed a knife from the kitchen “and cut the victim across the hand,” he said.”Other roommates then tackled Williams and held him until deputies arrived.”
      EMS treated the victim’s cut at the scene. The injury was “minor in nature and non life-threatening,” he said.
     Williams was taken to the Bulloch County Jail, charged with aggravated assault and held without bond, Anderson said.
