New York: A drunk US woman allegedly stabbed her roommate multiple times with a 14-inch serrated bread knife after he refused to stop playing music by The Eagles.

Vernett Bader, 54, from South Carolina faces domestic violence charges, police said.

Bader was at her North Charleston home on Monday while her 64-year-old roommate watched TV and listened to a loop of classic rock tunes by the "Hotel California" Grammy winner.

Another man, who was with the couple told police the victim had several cuts on his arms and hands and all of them were caused by Bader, ABC affiliate WCIV-TV reported.

The victim said he had been listening to The Eagles when Bader told him that she did not want to hear the classic rock band`s songs.

The man apparently did not entertain her wish. Bader responded by allegedly getting a 14-inch serrated bread knife and swung it at the man repeatedly.

The victim wrestled the knife away from her, but she came back with another knife before he could run and lock himself in the washroom.

The victim said he and Bader used to date, but while the relationship had ended they still lived together.

According to Bader, the victim was choking her which led her to stab him.

However, police did not find any strangulation marks on Bader and the third person corroborated the victim`s story.

All the three people were intoxicated at the time of the assault.

Bader has been arrested and taken to a detention center.
