Woman Arrested For Attacking Stepfather With Cooler Lid

Tuesday, August 05, 2014 - by Hollie Webb

A woman was arrested after police said she attacked her stepfather with a cooler lid because he would not let her in the house fast enough.

Police were called to Lightgoot Mill Road after Samantha Gail Lynn, 39, said her stepfather pushed her because she was excessively knocking on the door to his house.

 She told police she only wanted to go inside to get something to eat.

 She said that when he came to the door and pushed her, she grabbed a cooler lid and hit him in the head.

This caused bleeding and a large laceration.

 Her stepfather told police he did not push her. He said she had just been angry because he did not answer her knocking. He told police he could not get to the door quickly because he had a broken knee cap. He also said he had a large dog that liked to sit on his feet.

 The stepfather said Ms. Lynn had continued to hit him after she struck him in the head. He also said he became disoriented.

 He said he finally got her away from him long enough to close the door. Other family members stated Ms. Lynn struggles with anger issues.

 She was charged with domestic aggravated assault. Bond was set at $5,000.
