Police: Man stabbed pair with scotch bottle

Chadwick Scott Pennywell

A 21-year-old Blinn student is facing felony aggravated assault charges after police said he stabbed two men with a bottle of scotch.

The incident took place during an October birthday party in the 2400 block of Bandera Drive in south College Station after Chadwick Scott Pennywell reportedly told a woman at the party that she could have a drink of his whiskey if she performed a sexual favor, according to the arrest report.

As the woman's boyfriend and his friends tried to force Pennywell to leave, Pennywell struck several people with a 1.75-liter bottle of J&B Scotch Whiskey, police said.

Two people were treated at the College Station Medical Center for severe lacerations. One man had deep vertical cuts to his face, including several that went completely through his cheek, police said. The other had cuts to his mouth, tongue, left shoulder and left bicep, according to the report.

Pennywell told police he used the bottle in self-defense because eight to 10 people were pushing and swinging at him, according to the police report.

On Wednesday, Pennywell was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, each a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

He was released from the Brazos County Jail the same day after posting $10,000 bail.
