A woman was arrested after she threatened “to kill her baby daddy” and flattened his tires with a large knife, Oklahoma City police reported Monday.

Krystal Eula Martin, 23, of Oklahoma City, was arrested on a complaint of domestic assault with dangerous weapon.

Police were sent about 11:50 a.m. Friday to SW 21 and S Goff Avenue after Martin called to say her “baby daddy” put his hands on her, according to the police report.

An officer found the 28-year-old man walking along SW 22 followed by a gold 2011 Infinity driven by Martin. The man told the officer, “She's trying to run over me with her car,” and showed the officer a carving knife he took it away from Martin while she was slashing his tires, according to the report.

The officer approached Martin, who was in her car with two children. Martin told the officer the man punched her in the face, and she flattened his tires because he was getting away and police “don't do anything to him.”

The man told the officer Martin started the fight and she is often violent.

The two children were released to Martin's mother, who said Martin and the man always are fighting, according to the report.

When Martin was being arrested, she began yelling obscenities about police and began kicking the cage in the patrol car, according to the report.

She yelled repeatedly, “(Obscenity) cops better get some security when I get out,” police said.

Martin was taken to the Oklahoma County jail and is being held without bail, jail officials said Monday.
