She called him a ‘bitch’, he grabbed her by the throat twice and pushed her down to the floor. She threw eggs on his face. Those are just some of the allegations in the arrest warrant for Tyrone Groomster, who is free on a $2,500 bond, charged with domestic assault.
Metro Nashville Police responded to a domestic call early Friday morning, where the intoxicated female victim said she was pushed by her boyfriend, 44-year-old Tyrone Groomster. She told responding officers the pair had been arguing over financial issues and she called him a ‘bitch’. In response, she says he pushed her down twice, by the throat. She admitted to throwing food at him when he ‘came up on her’, and alleged that he had been violent with her in the past, making her want to prosecute.
When officers made contact with Groomster, he was cleaning up the mess at the scene, and told officers he was in the bed and his girlfriend became angry when he “wouldn’t party with her”. Officers observed egg on Groomster’s neck, consistent with earlier statements from the victim. He made it a point to tell two different responding officers that he did not “lay a hand” on the victim, however, police observed redness on the victim’s throat and a scratch under her jaw, which match the details of the initial 911 call. Tyrone Groomster, 44, was charged with domestic assault and booked into the Metro Jail where he served the required 12-hour domestic violence hold. He is free on a $2,500 bond.
