25-year-old Chanteal Hampton was charged with domestic assault with a deadly weapon after she pulled a knife on her child’s father and held it to his throat during an argument they had about their child’s behavior.

On May 21st, officers responded to a call at 918 1st Avenue regarding a person with a knife. According to the affidavit, Chanteal Hampton and Norman Hoyle fought over their child. The child had been misbehaving that day, so Hampton called out of work.
