30-year-old Lakesha Smith was charged with harassment, vandalism, domestic assault, assault on an officer, evading, and resisting arrest after a man showed authorities footage of her destroying his clothes and she refused to be arrested.

On November 29th, Metro Nashville Police Officer Silinsky was dispatched to a hang-up call near 1622 Treutland Place. According to the affidavit, officers were flagged down by Rochdi Benaissa who showed them a video on his phone. This video revealed Lakesha Smith, his romantic partner, had taken a bag of Rochdi’s clothes and poured what appeared to be a bottle of bleach on them. Rochdi was heard making pleas to leave before the camera turned away from the altercation. In the video and in-person Rochdi claimed Lakesha threw a cup of liquid and struck him.

When officers interviewed Lakesha she admitted to pouring bleach on Rochdi’s clothes and claimed it was because he owed her money. Officers advised Lakesha to find someone to watch her child because when she went to booking. Lakesha picked up her child, told the officers she was not going to jail, and walked out the back door toward her vehicle.

Officers then stated she was allowed to put her child down, but if she continued to try to leave they would add evading arrest charges. She did not comply and continued her attempt to flee. When an officer grabbed her elbow, she quickly turned around and swatted his hand. She released the child while officers were physically restraining her. Rochdi picked the child up and Lakesha told him “I’m gonna kill your ass, I swear to god.” An officer repeated her threat and asked her if that was what she said. She responded with “I am”. When informed that would be added to her charges she stated, “Add it”.

Once they finally restrained Lakesha, she refused to stand up and additional officers had to help carry her out. She was advised of additional charges and responded, “I know my background so y’all look stupid, I don’t care.” While four officers were trying to lift Lakesha, she kicked an officer on the left side of his face. It took four personnel and a hobble restraint to secure Lakesha Smith in a vehicle and the incident was captured on a body-worn camera.

On November 30th, Lakesha Smith was arrested and charged with harassment, vandalism, domestic assault, assault on an officer, evading, and resisting arrest. She was released on a $10,500 bond.
