Hank Watson - Jailed After Forcing Girlfriend To Carve His Name Into Her Arm With Knife


Oak Hill, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Hank Watson, a 41-year-old Florida man was jailed Saturday after he allegedly forced his ex-girlfriend to carve his name into her arm.

According to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, Watson and his ex-girlfriend, 21-year-old Amanda Telson, were in a car with Watson's cousin when the estranged couple reportedly started arguing over accusations that Telson was cheating on Watson.

The argument quickly turned violent when Watson began repeatedly punching Telson. He then allegedly held a knife to the woman's throat and threatened to kill her if she didn't use a second knife to carve his name into her arm. Fearing for her life, Telson complied with his demand.

At one point Watson reportedly began striking Telson in the head as she carved the letters "HANK" into her arm.

Fearing further abuse, Telson did not contact police and was unable to seek medical treatment because she lacked an identification car and transportation.

She stated that Watson had a crack-cocaine addiction, and would regularly attack her when he was high. The couple had been together for 8 months.

She stated that despite what she went through, she forgave him and decided to go public with the abuse in order to warn other women about being careful with who they choose to get into a relationship with. She was granted an order of protection against Watson and is currently seeing a counselor.

Investigators say Watson was apprehended the next day after he struck another cousin, Kevin Watson, across his forehead with a piece of wood.

The victim has a prosthetic leg as well as bulging and herniated discs. He had been fishing with his daughter when Watson approached him and asked to borrow some money. When the victim refused, Watson attacked him.

The victim stated that he had a soft spot on his skull and had been feeling sick since the assault. Watson's mother stated that her son had done nothing wrong, and was acting in self-defense.

Watson was booked into the Volusia County Jail on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for attacking Telson and abuse of a disabled adult for the attack on his cousin. He is currently being held without bond.
