70-year-old Nathaniel Gass was charged with aggravated assault after throwing hot grease on another resident of the shared living facility.
On March 18th, police responded to an aggravated assault call on Claiborne Street. When police arrived, they found Brenda Flemmings writhing in pain. Brenda told police Nathaniel Gass was acting erratically, yelling, and making threats. She then stated Nathaniel threw hot grease on her without provocation.
Brenda was immediately transported from the scene by ambulance. Officers noted that her injuries could not be assessed until she arrived at the trauma center. Brenda and Nathaniel live at the same shared living facility but do not share a room, nor are they in a domestic relationship. Nathaniel made a spontaneous remark admitting that he threw hot grease on Brenda.
Nathaniel Gass was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. His bond was set at $5,000.
