In response to a domestic call on Cannon Street, Metro Police arrived to find 32-year-old Deidra Tarrant standing in the doorway, armed with a broomstick which she refused to drop, making threats to a man.
Metro Nashville Police Officer Curtis Fisher arrived at a Cannon Street home on Saturday after someone called to report a domestic disturbance. As he arrived, he found Deidra Tarrant standing in the doorway to the residence, broomstick in hand, actively threatening the male victim. Fisher gave commands to drop the broomstick, which Tarrant initially ignored and refused to comply. Eventually, she dropped the broomstick, but in doing so, she threw a broken piece at the male, striking him in the left shin, causing a scratch on his body.
Deidra Tarrant was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault (violation of court order), and criminal contempt (violation of order of protection), as she was served a protection order against her on July 3rd, 2019. She remains jailed on a $6,500 bond.
