A Corinth man faces two counts of aggravated domestic violence and a charge of aggravated stalking after an incident last week, police said.
The suspect, Raymond Wayne Fields, 24, of County Road 200, allegedly assaulted a female with a utility knife Friday morning after ramming her vehicle and causing it to crash, according to Corinth Police.
Fields was observed cutting himself about his own throat with a utility knife as police arrived on scene at the intersection of Kendrick and Henson roads.
Fields refused to drop the knife when ordered, and OC spray was administered by an officer. Fields fled on foot but was taken into custody a short while later at Community Drive and transported to Magnolia Regional Health Center.
The female is the separated spouse of Fields. He allegedly made contact with her at her place of employment and cut a tire on her vehicle, police said.
She fled in the vehicle, and Fields allegedly followed her, ramming her vehicle several times from behind and causing it to crash at the intersection.
Fields approached her vehicle and allegedly assaulted her with the utility knife, according to police. Fields then got back in his vehicle and crashed into a nearby utility pole.
The victim sustained minor injuries and was treated on scene.
Fields is still currently at MRHC and is facing charges upon release from the hospital.
Corinth Police Detective Michael Suitor is working the case.
