According to an arrest affidavit, the knife caused a 2-inch cut on the victim’s right arm, the television station reported. The woman then pushed Ford away and shut the shower door.

Police said Ford and the victim were friends and fellow musicians in the Nashville area, according to the affidavit.

After the stabbing, Ford allegedly ran to a neighbor’s home to call the police, WSMV reported.

Officers said that when they arrived, Ford attempted to prevent them from entering the home, the television station reported. According to the arrest affidavit, Ford told officers that she “had a bad night” and that “no one is in my house besides my friend.”
