On November 12th 2022 at 23:20 I, Deputy Dodson, was dispatched to [3200 BLOCK] Greenhill Drive in reference to a male with blood all over himself. Dispatch advised that the complainant was Fairfield Security and that the male had drove himself from that address and told Fairfield Security that his wife and stepdaughter were fighting. Dispatch then advised the male was going back to the residence.

Upon arrival there was a younger white female with blood all over herself and no pants on standing in the yard distraught. There was also an older male in the yard covered in blood asking Engine 11 crew to go check on his wife inside. I requested Deputy Swafford to come stand with female while I went inside. I then followed Engine 11 crew inside and noticed an older white female with blood all over herself laying on the kitchen floor.

I also noticed a large amount of blood all over the place, and strewn throughout the kitchen were appliances, glass, and other items. As the older male bent over to check on the older female I noticed that he had blood squirting from the back of his head. I advised medical staff and they clotted the wound. I asked the older female what happened and she stated that her daughter had gotten drunk and that she was going crazy. The older gentlemen gave a similar sentiment.

Seeing that both patients were stable I walked outside to speak with the younger female. I noticed the female who was now on her knees in the yard had blood all over herself, but only a small cut on her thumb. I asked the female how she got blood on herself. She stated that it was because of her step dad. I asked how it was because of him and she stated he tried to say that she did not love her mom. The female stated her step dad tried to say that she did not love her mom.

While speaking with the female she would venture off topic from my question and blame her step dad. I requested Deputy Swafford to get the younger females information. Deputy Swafford identified the younger female as Christina Tarkington. I then notified Sergeant Hutcheson of what was being said and that Christina was not making much sense.

I then went and spoke with Christina again and asked her to reiterate how she got blood on her. She stated the blood came from her fighting with her step dad and mom. Throughout speaking with Christina she requested that I just take her away. I asked her why she was saying this and she never gave a direct answer. Christina also kept asking myself and Deputy Swafford to let her go which was strange since Christina was sitting in the yard and was not under arrest.

I then asked Christina if she had anything to drink tonight and she stated she had “crown”. Believing that Christina was referring to Crown Royal and knowing that it is a hard liquor I asked Christina if she “had a lot or a little?” To which Christina stated that she had a lot. I asked Christina if she had any pills or drugs and she stated that she was prescribed Zoloft for depression.

Christina then stated that she would never hurt her mother. I explained to Christina that I never told her that she hurt her mom. Throughout my time speaking with Christina she was clearly intoxicated and screamed during much of our conversation. I left Christina with Deputy Swafford and told him that she could sit in my car due to her not having pants on and the harsh weather conditions.

I then identified the older male as [VICTIM #1], and I also identified the older female as [VICTIM #2]. [VICTIM #2] continually reiterated that Christina had been drinking and that she used to be an addict. She also made the statement multiple times that Christina had been drinking and does not usually drink. [VICTIM #2] then stated recently Christina had gotten drunk like this and was uncontrollable.

[VICTIM #1] also stated that Christina was mentally unstable and had stabbed him with a piece of glass. [VICTIM #1] had a clear cut to his left shoulder and was bleeding profusely out the back of his head/neck area. [VICTIM #2] then stated Christina had pushed her down after using derogatory language towards her. [VICTIM #2] stated once on the ground she was kicked in the throat by Christina.

[VICTIM #1] stated the broken glass cake holder is what Christina had used to cut him. [VICTIM #1] stated that Christina cut him when he bent over to help [VICTIM #2]. [VICTIM #1] stated that Christina used a piece of a glass cake holder. I then noticed what I presumed was a chocolate cake that was strewn throughout the kitchen and it’s glass holder was broken in pieces throughout the kitchen and floor. Also, Investigator Millsap was notified and responded to this incident.

Christina was arrested for Aggravated Assault under the Family Violence Act for her lacerations to [VICTIM #1]. She was also arrested for Battery for kicking [VICTIM #2] in the throat. This incident was punishable under the Family Violence Act due to [VICTIM #1] and Christina both living inside the home together as well as Christina being [VICTIM #2]’s daughter. [VICTIM #1] was life-flighted to Kennestone Hospital.

While on the way to the jail Christina made the spontaneous utterance that [VICTIM #1] molested her daughter, and that he got what he deserves. Nothing Further. Warrants Pending.
