Columbus Man Arrested for Stabbing Woman, 29.8 Grams of Meth

COLUMBUS – Police say they found 29.8 grams of meth in a man’s pickup, after they arrested him for stabbing a woman three times.

Columbus Police arrested David Tate, 34, back in early December after they were called to the hospital for a stabbing, says court records. Police say during an investigation, they found large amounts of blood in the basement where Tate lived, after a doctor confirmed a woman had been stabbed three times, says an affidavit.

Tate was taken into custody by authorities, and his vehicle, a 2008 GMC Sierra pickup was towed to a CPD storage facility, says an affidavit.

Tate admitted to authorities that there was both meth and marijuana in his vehicle, says the affidavit. Police say a search of his vehicle uncovered 29.8 grams of methamphetamine.

Tate is facing felony charges for 2nd degree assault, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony, possession of a controlled substance, possession of meth, and two charges for being a habitual criminal, says court records.

Tate is due in court on February 22nd, says court records.
