Drive Apt. 7, Mineral Wells, reported she traveled with her
roommate to 830 Mount Tom Road, Marietta, to pick up her roommate’s
children when she was attacked by one of the home’s residents,
Brenda K. Day, age 51. Ms. Murrey said she exited her vehicle
after Mrs. Day pulled her vehicle in the driveway behind her
and exited her vehicle. As she reached for her mobile phone
Ms. Murrey said Mrs. Day grabbed the phone and threw it into
the woods. Mrs. Day then slapped Ms. Murrey and as the two
fought, Mrs. Day allegedly removed a small handgun from her
sweater and struck Ms. Murrey in the face. Ms. Murrey stated
she then put her hands up and walked toward the house as Mrs.
Day ordered her to do so, reportedly while pointing the gun
at her back. Turning quickly, Ms. Murrey said she tackled Mrs.
Day to the ground and the two fought until Mrs. Day’s
son intervened. Though Mrs. Day denied being in possession
of any kind of weapon, a witness reported seeing Mrs. Day striking
Ms. Murray with a light colored handgun. As a result of the
incident, Deputy Sheriff Reeder requested a summons for Mrs.
Day for aggravated menacing and assault.
