Rogersville, Virginia (The Weekly Vice) - Jonathan Paul Gibson, of Rogersville, was arrested Wednesday after he bit, punched, and then beat his wife with an iron skillet.
According to the Hawkins County Sheriff's Office, Jonathan and his estranged wife, Samantha Gibson, had arrived at a residence Wednesday night to pick up some personal items.
Investigators say an argument broke out between the two when Samantha discovered the cap to a needle in the bathroom. That's when Jonathon reportedly became enraged and assaulted his wife.
Deputies say Jonathan pushed the woman to the ground, put a knife to her throat, and told her he was going to kill her, their daughter and then himself. The couple's daughter was also in the residence at the time.
Jonathan then reportedly moved the knife across the woman's stomach in a slicing motion with the blade turned towards her. He then bit the woman on the forehead, punched her in the head, and struck her with an iron skillet.
The woman told police she was able to get to a phone and call her father, who arrived on scene to find Jonathan and Samantha in the front yard with his hands around her neck. The father tackled Jonathan and held him on the ground until police could arrive.
Jonathan Gibson was booked into jail on a charge of aggravated assault. He currently remains in jail without bail pending a bond hearing. He is scheduled to appear on April 5th.
