An argument over narcotics leaves a man stabbed and a woman in jail.  Shreveport Police have arrested 41-year-old Vanessa Fields and booked her on a charge of aggravated battery for allegedly stabbing Ricky Sullivan in the chest.  Detectives say that their investigation has revealed that Fields and Sullivan were once romantically involved and got into an argument over narcotics at a home in the 3100 block of DeVaughn Street.  At some point during that argument, they say Fields stabbed Sullivan. He was taken to LSU Health with what have been described as moderate wounds.  She was arrested at her home in the 2200 block of Marion Street and booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
