33-year-old Gabrielle Bailey was charged with aggravated assault, violating an order of protection, and bond forfeiture after throwing gasoline onto a man’s vehicle while in the parking lot of a North Nashville tire shop in an attempt to burn him.
On June 26th, officers were notified of a potential domestic disturbance at the intersection of Dr. D.B. Todd Jr. Blvd and Buchanan St. Upon arrival, law enforcement made contact with Nathaniel Reed, who informed officers of the incident. According to the affidavit, Reed drove into the parking lot of Robin Hood Tires when Gabrielle Bailey approached the vehicle. Reed and Bailey were both aware of the active no-contact order in place against Bailey. Following Bailey’s approach, the woman became enraged at Reed and threw gasoline onto the vehicle. Officers questioned Bailey’s actions, to which she responded with a motive to burn Reed.
According to Bailey, she was afraid after her approach to the vehicle. Reed also reportedly reached for a stick during the altercation. A search was conducted on Bailey’s person, resulting in the officers’ recovery of a bottle containing lighter fluids, two knives, and a lighter. Further investigation revealed an active order of protection against Reed and bond conditions prohibiting contact between the two parties. Video surveillance was recorded and taken in as evidence.
Gabrielle Bailey was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, violating an order of protection, and bond forfeiture. Her bond was set at $7,500.
