Michael D. Williams

A 41-year-old Georgetown man was arrested at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday after allegedly stabbing his brother.
Georgetown police met with the 43-year-old victim in the emergency room where he was being treated for lacerations on his arm.
He said he and his brother — Michael D. Williams — got into a physical altercation at their parent’s home where they both reside.
He said Williams came home “intoxicated and began to verbally accost him,” the report states.
The altercation escalated into a fight and Williams “began to push him through the house.”
The older brother said he raised his fist which is when Williams reportedly grabbed a pair of scissors and began to stab him.
The victim suffered several puncture wounds to his left arm.
The victim was reluctant to press charges since the suspect is his brother, the report states.
Williams was located by police and was taken intro custody. After being read his Miranda Rights he refused to give a statement, the report states.
He was charged with assault and battery, second degree.
