Salisbury man charged with stabbing bandmate remains in jail
Authorities say an argument among bandmates got out of hand overnight when a Salisbury man stabbed his friend. Christian Aaron Reeves, 22, of the 400 block of 14th Street, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
The incident occurred around 6 p.m. in the 1000 block of Mop Bucket Drive, off Mooresville Road, not far from Kentucky Derby Drive. When Rowan Sheriff’s deputies arrived, Daniel Hendry, 27, of the 100 block of Farrell Lane, Salisbury, was sitting in a chair in a garage at the Mop Bucket Drive home. Bandmate Corey Tyler was holding a cloth to Hendry’s wound. The department report does not indicate where Hendry was stabbed or the severity of his injuries.
Authorities said Reeves left shortly after the incident, but was pulling into the driveway when law enforcement were on the scene. Reeves told officers his name. Reeves also told the officers he put the knife in a compartment in the driver’s side door.
Another band member, Brandon Maloney, told authorities Reeves and Hendry argued, scuffled and Hendry realized he was cut. The men were at Maloney’s home. Tyler and Maloney told deputies they tried to diffuse the situation. Hendry expressed disbelief that Reeves stabbed him.
“Well I had my knife out,” Reeves said, according to reports.
Reeves remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $35,000 secured bond. Reeves has been convicted of possession of drug paraphernalia and felony breaking and entering.
