Columbus crime: Woman accused of cutting man, leaving inch-deep cut on chin, throat

A Columbus woman faces accusations she cut a man at her home on Wednesday, leaving an inch-deep cut on his chin and throat, police said.

Linda Bular, 48, is charged with aggravated battery, obstruction of a law enforcement officer and possession of drug paraphernalia, reports state.

According to police, the suspect and a 47-year-old man were drinking around 12:05 p.m. inside her Clarabelle Street home when she grew angry and told him to leave. He wanted to get his cigarettes before leaving, and that’s when the suspect grabbed and scratched him as he reached for the cigarette pack.

The suspect also grabbed a small knife and cut him on the throat, leaving an inch-deep cut that’s 4- to 6 inches long, reports state.

Police said the suspect was at her home when officers arrived, and she told police that the man had punched her and that’s why she cut him. She had no marks on her, and she became uncooperative and then “combative” when put in handcuffs.

The suspect kicked the door and window of the patrol car multiple times, reports state.

Police said they found two suspected crack pipes in the suspect’s living room, which were taken into custody.
