NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A woman uses an ice pick in an assault on her friend in a north Nashville motel.

The man tells police that he rented a room for 34-year-old Amanda Hopkins Sunday at the Kings Inn on Brick Church Pike. Hopkins had friends over, whom he asked to leave once they got to loud, according to the affidavit.

Hopkins became angry and came at the victim with an ice pick allegedly saying she would stab him in the eye. A witness stepped in between the two before she left with the weapon.

The victim received a minor scratch below the eye.

Hopkins is in the Davidson County Jail on $25,000 bond.
