Ardmore Police Officer Justin Eastwood responded to a report of an altercation in progress yesterday afternoon at a residence in the 200 block of North Washington.
The victim, whose name was not released, said the suspect, 23 year old Cody Ryan Hood, tried to stab him, cutting his hand in the process. Hood was arrested and taken to the Carter County Detention Center.
Ardmore Police will submit their report to the District Attorney’s office for consideration of a charge for Assault and Battery with a Deadly Weapon.
Hood currently has another case pending for the same charge in Carter County in case CF-2017-00666. That case was filed in Dec. 2017 and is set for preliminary conference next Thursday before Special District Judge Carson M. Brooks. Hood also has a separate case for a misdemeanor methamphetamine possession charge for which he was serving a deferred sentence.
