NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH: Another reminder to always be aware of who you let into your home, and the importance of using licensed, bonded/insured, and BACKGROUND CHECKED providers. Many providers work independent of service provider companies to avoid background checks. There are many ways to request the criminal history of a provider before hiring them – including online resources – however they often use multiple facebook accounts, even under different, or middle, names. When we find that providers with criminal background are advertising on neighborhood pages on social media, we index them here so you may be an informed consumer, and make informed decisions. You could be letting someone into your home that was recently convicted of a felony, such as “Aggravated Attempted Assault, Strangulation – Int/Kn“. One such person is Connell ‘Dan’ Beasley – who works locally as an independent contractor.
Connell “Dan” Beasley works as a handy-man, under the business name of ‘TradeJack Services’, advertising his services on social media and locally in East Nashville. Some of his arrest affidavits include the following:
“[victim] told him to leave a second time the defendant[Beasley] assaulted her. The victim was grabbed by her neck, lifted off of the ground and pulled out of the bar and into the parking lot. The defendant[Beasley] then shoved her against a wall and raised his fist as if to strike her.”
The arrest record for Connell ‘Dan’ Beasley in Nashville goes back as early as 1996 with a vandalism charge, at the age of 18, and a driving on a suspended license 2 years later. 2002 brought about a disorderly conduct charge, as well as speeding (98 in a 70). and no insurance followed by another suspended license arrest in 2006. 2007 saw another speeding violation, and failure to update address on license. Beasley’s first Public Intoxication charge also comes in 2007, followed by a second one in 2008 (coupled with resisting arrest & disorderly conduct). In 2010 he was charged with a moving violation, along with the financial responsibility law.
“defendant[Beasley] assaulted the victim without any provocation.”
“The victim was driven to Skyline Medical Center by another employee; she was treated and released for a broken collarbone and a torn rotator cuff.”
Things escalated quickly in 2013, when Connell Beasley was arrested for felony aggravated assault. Shortly thereafter, in 2014, he is charged with another disorderly conduct, and then in December of 2014 he is adjucated on the 2103 assault charge. It is pleaded down to a felony attempted aggravated assault – strangulation – Int/Kn. Beasley was sentenced to 4 years for the offense, however Judge Wyatt accepted a suspended sentence motion that allowed him to serve 11/29 in jail (until 5/8/2015), and the remaining 3 years on Community Corrections.
Here is the full CJIS report on Beasley for Davidson County:
The full affidavit of the most recent charge is below:
“On 3/18/2013 the victim, KELLIE KETRON, was working as a bar manager at FooBar (2511 Gallatin Pke.) when she observed a fight break out in the parking lot between some patrons. One of the patrons involved in the fight was the defendant, CONNELL BEASLEY. After the fight was broken up, the defendant returned inside the bar. The victim told the suspect he needed to leave due to him fighting. The defendant refused to do so and when she told him to leave a second time the defendant assaulted her. The victim was grabbed by her neck, lifted off of the ground and pulled out of the bar and into the parking lot. The defendant then shoved her against a wall and raised his fist as if to strike her. Several other patrons and staff members of the bar came outside and separated them. The defendant left the area afterwards. The incident was witnessed by other employees at the bar and patrons who indicated the defendant assaulted the victim without any provocation. The victim and one other employee of the location know the defendant personally as an ex-employee of the bar. The victim was driven to Skyline Medical Center by another employee; she was treated and released for a broken collarbone and a torn rotator cuff.”
Beasley often shares his business page in neighborhood groups on social media:
We verified that Beasley does, in fact, have a registered business with the county clerk at the address below:
According to Metro Codes, there is also an open “active abate violation case” at that address, the reported violation is ‘OPERATING BUSINESS FROM RESIDENCE’; inspection and review is still pending.
Though he has a registered business with the county clerk – we were not able to locate a federal EIN for him for tax purposes, nor a contractor’s license, or a handyman’s license, nor a limited plumbers license, nor a limited electricians license, nor any business registered with the state of TN. Though in many publicly available photos, he has several people working for him, in ‘TradeJack Services’ company branded shirts, which likely either makes him a contractor or employer -however we have not records of him issuing any earning forms for his contractors if they are 10-99; nor any IRS reports if he’s an employer. There is also no federal or state tax records for his business name that we were able to locate despite extensive searches.
Despite his own convictions, Beasley advertises that he’s hiring – but applicants cannot have “theft, sex, or drug” charges on their records. Noticeably absent from this list is any violent offense, of which Beasley himself has. He also specifically requests ‘men’ to apply something we’ve covered before him him.
He frequently boats of his wide range of work, including electrical and plumbing.
