An Arkansas mother was arrested Thursday after she sliced her son on his face with a machete during an argument, authorities said.

Pulaski County sheriff's office deputies arrived at the Sherwood home of 57-year-old Wanda Jean Butler on Frenchman Mountain Road around 6:20 p.m. after getting a call about a fight, according to a police report.

Butler's son was in the driveway and bleeding from his right hand and upper lip, the deputy wrote. The victim told investigators he and Butler had gotten into a heated argument, and she cut him with a machete, the report said.

The report did not list the victim's age.

Butler was arrested on a charge of second-degree domestic battery and booked into the Pulaski County jail later that evening.

She is being held without bail. A court date is scheduled for March 28.

Could be the son is an adult and was a sponging thug-a-be and was being kicked out to be on his own .

"Black violence," Titleist10? What the hell does that have to do with it? Did you know that a mother in Madison County in 2015 was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon for shooting her son in the back while he was trying to leave the house? And she was white!

I was certain that there would be a comment here from titleist 10. He/she only sees one color---Black. Truth is, corruption, filthy living and sin is found EVERYWHERE. The next time you pass a mirror, linger there for a bit--you may find something there to write about. Be careful little mouth what you say because one day you may have to eat your own words. I'm just saying.
