Deputies charged Lindsey’s daughter, Gerri Carnes, 57, of Bowling Green with wanton abuse or neglect of an adult, according to Grimes’ arrest citation.

Carnes initially told deputies that her mother fell a couple of days ago and refused medical treatment, according to her citation. Lindsey told deputies that she and her daughter argued, she tried to leave to get help and Carnes pushed her causing her to fall back onto a television on the floor.

Lindsey is currently being treated for a broken rib and punctured lung, according to the citation.
