A Wilkes woman has been charged with assault after a
Monday incident left her boyfriend injured.
Deputies called to the home of
Danielle Weyker and Jessie Cortner found Cortner with two large welts on his
side and claw-like scratch marks. Deputies determined the scratches came from a
belt, allegedly used by Weyker to strike Cortner. Weyker attempted to evade
arrest by scratching a deputy with her fingernails. Weyker was eventually
shocked into cooperation with a Taser. She has been charged with simple assault
and resisting arrest, but other charges could follow.
