Medina's mother reportedly stepped in between her daughter and husband, and when she turned her back, Medina reportedly grabbed her from behind and put the knife against her hip.
At some point, police said, the mother was able to knock the knife from her hand and it ultimately ended up under the refrigerator, where it was retrieved by police.
A struggle ensued between the two women as the police were en route, at which time Medina reportedly hit her mother in the legs several times.
Medina was booked into Colusa County Jail on suspicion of felony counts of assualt with a deadly weapon, not a firearm, and false imprionment, as well as misdemeanor counts of brandishing a deadly weapon and battery. She posted the bond on a $20,000 bail shortly after booking, police said.
Man arrested for 'car assault'
Christopher J. Muniz, 32, of Arbuckle, was arrested Saturday night on suspicion of assualt with a deadly weapon after he reportedly rammed his car into the side of another vehicle in what Colusa County sheriff's investigators are saying could be a case of mistaken identity.
Muniz was traveling on Mumma Road south of College City when he reportedly sped up as if to pass another car being driven by an Arbuckle man.
The victim told deputies that Muniz purposefully sideswiped his car and then fled the area, only to return to tell him he thought he was someone else before leaving the scene again, the Sheriff's Department reported.
The victim was able to keep control of the car and bring it to a stop on the side of the road without crashing.
Muniz, who was arrested and booked into Colusa County Jail on $35,000 bail, reportedly told deputies his accelerator became stuck.
