BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge Police report responded to a stabbing incident that turned out to be an act of self-defense, and say they left the scene with the injured party in handcuffs.

Thomas was arrested for domestic abuse/battery/child endangerment, and unauthorized entry into an inhabited dwelling.
