39-year-old James Battle was charged with three counts of domestic assault after fighting with his children and wife during a Zoom call with a teacher.

On August 13th, officers were dispatched to 5636 Old Hickory Boulevard, Apartment 407. When they arrived, Princess Horton made officers aware that she is married to James Battle and they have three children together. She stated that James had used cocaine, alcohol, and was causing a disturbance in their home the entire day. Princess reported that she witnessed him assault their son due to a disagreement with one of the daughters.

She explained that he was intoxicated and flipped off the daughter’s computer screen while she was in the middle of a Zoom call with her teacher. Princess then began to quarrel with her husband because of his actions toward their children. The son told officers he watched his father attempt to hit his sister, but he missed. James then turned around and began to wrestle the son in the living room causing a noticeable injury on the child’s back. After tussling with the son James moved back to the mother and began berating her and calling her a “bitch.”
