Wanda Jean Butler, 57, of Sherwood

An Arkansas mother was arrested Thursday after she sliced her son on his face with a machete during an argument, authorities said.

Pulaski County sheriff's office deputies arrived at the Sherwood home of 57-year-old Wanda Jean Butler on Frenchman Mountain Road around 6:20 p.m. after getting a call about a fight, according to a police report.

Butler's son was in the driveway and bleeding from his right hand and upper lip, the deputy wrote. The victim told investigators he and Butler had gotten into a heated argument, and she cut him with a machete, the report said.

The report did not list the victim's age.

Butler was arrested on a charge of second-degree domestic battery and booked into the Pulaski County jail later that evening.

She is being held without bail. A court date is scheduled for March 28.

"Black violence," Titleist10? What the hell does that have to do with it? Did you know that a mother in Madison County in 2015 was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon for shooting her son in the back while he was trying to leave the house? And she was white!
