DEL RIO-James Edward Norman II, 44, of Bear Branch Road, in Cosby, said a woman he had an argument with pulled a knife on him and lunged at him, and he cut himself with the knife in self-defense, on Sunday, Jan. 19, the Cocke County Sheriff's Department reported.

Norman said he was in a verbal altercation with the offender because he loaned her his truck, and she was gone with the truck for over four hours, Deputy Sheriff Christina Wallen reported.
