45-year-old Bridget Bell was charged with aggravated assault after threatening to kill her boyfriend’s son with a knife while several witnesses were present.
On September 22nd, Metro Nashville Police Officer Davis was dispatched to a domestic dispute at 2083 Remington Park Road. Upon arrival, officers made contact with the parties involved, who all live together. Johnny and Jon Thompson had similar statements.
They advised police everyone in the house was trying to sleep when Bridget Bell emerged from the bedroom and began banging pots and pans together attempting to cook. They proceeded to ask Bell to go to sleep and she replied saying she was going to kill Jon. She proceeded to tell them she would get a knife and kill Jon. Jon told police she actually grabbed a knife and threatened him with it. A juvenile in the residence, as well as Jon’s father Johnny, overheard the entire altercation. Due to Jon’s story being corroborated by witness statements, Bell was determined to be the primary aggressor.
Bridget Bell was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She is currently jailed in lieu of a $25,000 bond.
