68-year-old Alice Lianos was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail, charged with the domestic assault of both her daughter and son-in-law for two separate incidents. Most recently, video captured her punching her son-in-law in the testicles when he turned the heat back on after she turned it off due to a high electric bill.
Metro Nashville Police responded to a domestic assault call on February 24th on Milliken Bend Rd. The first victim stated he is the son-in-law of Alice Lianos, and he was in an argument with her about the high NES electric bill while he had a heater on. He reported that Alice came in and turned the heater off, he turned it back on, and she then pushed him, hit him, pinched his legs, then punched him in the testicles, and pulled him by his hair, all in an attempt to get him to move out of the way so she could turn the heater back off. This incident was captured on video by the victim.
While police were at the residence, the victim’s wife, and daughter of Alice Lianos, told police she also had a video of her mother assaulting her six weeks prior, in January. Police viewed a video of the incident, which shows the 68-year-old grabbing the daughter by the arm in an attempt to retrieve a laptop computer after telling her to stop using it and to turn it off. The victim refused to turn the laptop off, stating it needed to “download some updates”. The daughter says she was assaulted when her mother grabbed her by the arm without her permission.
Now charged with two counts of domestic assault, police transported the elderly woman downtown to booking and processed her into the jail. After the state-mandated 12-hour hold, Alice Lianos posed a $1,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear in court in July.
