In May of 2016, Scott and the victim got into an argument at her home on Seminole Street in Perry.

Scott hit the victim in the head with a lamp causing a large cut and fracturing her skull. They claimed it was an accident, but evidence at the scene supported that Scott maliciously caused the injury.
