30-year-old Lauren Langston is charged with harassment and stalking after reportedly calling and texting her soon-to-be ex-husband 19+ times daily, stalking him outside his new home, and attempting to run over him with a car.
On January 1st, Metro Nashville Police officers responded to a stalking call located on Paces Ferry Drive. Upon arrival, Metro officers made contact with the victim who stated that he noticed a Dark Nissan Sedan parked in the road near his residence. The victim also stated that as he approached the vehicle, the defendant turned it on and drove towards him making him run thru his yard to escape the path as she attempted to run over him. He stated that as the vehicle passed, it was Lauren Langston, his soon-to-be ex-wife, in the driver’s seat.
According to the affidavit, the victim later observed a note on his vehicle that said “I will look dumb? – your wife (AH)”. After reporting the incident and speaking with Metro Police, the victim messaged his soon-to-be ex-wife to stop contacting him and leave him alone, however she continued to send 19+ texts per day, and he received multiple calls from private numbers, even while the police were present taking the reports. During the initial breakup, Lauren reportedly told her husband “If you leave me you will no longer breathe”.
On February 8th, Lauren Langston was taken into custody and charged with harassment and stalking. She is currently out of jail on a $5,000 bond.
