Christopher Jones is charged with domestic assault after Metro Police say he punched his girlfriend in the face in response to her denying his request for money.

Metro Nashville Police responded to the Zermatt Ave home of Christopher D. Jones and his girlfriend on September 5th at 12:38 a.m. on a domestic disturbance call. While they were on the patio, Jones reportedly asked his girlfriend for an amount of money. When she told him no, he is alleged to have punched her in the mouth. The victim reports that things got ‘fuzzy’ after that, and she may have blacked out as she couldn’t remember exactly what happened after she as punched. Officers noted an abrasion in the area where the punch landed.

Jones had left the scene when officers arrived, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was arrested on Monday, September 16th, and charged with domestic assault. After serving the mandated 12-hour domestic violence hold, Jones posted a $2,000 bond and was released with a court date later this month.
