Lucas and Dyer were scheduled for their initial appearance in Circuit Court on Tuesday.
During the stop, Lucas told the deputy she had been in an argument with her mom’s boyfriend before she “blacked out” and stabbed him multiple times, according to court documents.
The man who was allegedly attacked was at the emergency department when officers called him. He told them he had argued with Lucas, his girlfriend’s daughter, and gone back inside his room.
While making a call to a friend, he heard Lucas pacing outside of the room, according to court documents. He opened the door to tell her she could “get the hell out” and she allegedly began swinging a kitchen knife at him. He told police he punched her in self-defense and immediately got a ride to the hospital.
He had three cuts to his left cheek, including a deep, three-inch long gash as well as cuts on his hands, shoulder and hand.
