28-year-old Chelsea Clark was charged with domestic assault, harassment, and vandalism after she punched her fiance in the face, pulled some of his hair out, punched his TV, and then later blew his phone up while calling from a hotel in Knoxville, per report.
On January 3rd, police were dispatched to Tampa Drive in reference to a domestic disturbance. Contact was made with James Thomas, who stated that his fiancee Chelsea Clark attacked him. James told officers he and Chelsea were having an argument over dinner and she escalated the matter physically. Chelsea began hitting James in the face and pulling his hair, per the affidavit. Police observed a large portion of hair on the floor along with a noticeable patch of hair missing from James’ scalp.

On January 25th, James reported that the night prior he received a call from the phone number (865) 687-4607 that read “Shauna Jones” on the caller ID. When James picked up the phone he found that it was Chelsea on the other end.
