On October 28th, Goodlettsville Police Officer Shane Farrell responded to a domestic assault call at 209 Graves Road. When he arrived, he spoke with Jacquelyn Stephens who stated she and girlfriend Sonya Bratton had been drinking when they began arguing about a cat.

According to the affidavits, Bratton hit Stephens in the face leaving a small cut. Stephens believed that she had been hit with a knife but no evidence supporting that claim was found on the scene. Office Farrell then spoke with Bratton who claimed the verbal altercation escalated when Stephens scratched her, drawing blood.
