New Port Richey man accused of stabbing wife with scissors

NEW PORT RICHEY — A man was arrested Monday after, police say, he stabbed his wife in the elbow with a pair of scissors.

William Joseph Jackson, 53, had been arguing with his wife, who was upset about him spending time at the neighbor's house that night, a New Port Richey police report states. When Jackson, an aircraft mechanic at Tampa International Airport, returned home about 8:45 p.m., he grabbed a pair of scissors, knocked his wife down on the kitchen floor and stuck the shears in her right elbow, the police report said.

She called 911. Officers arrived to find the woman with a gash in her arm. She was treated at a local hospital.

Jackson told police he had no argument or fight with his wife. He was arrested on a charge of aggravated domestic battery with a deadly weapon and remained Tuesday in the Land O'Lakes jail without bail.
