77-year-old Bobbie Peoples is charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after police say she pointed a gun at her husband of 54 years and demanded to know what he did with the painting of a dog she was currently working on. The husband called the police to report he was afraid she would shoot him.
Metro Nashville Police responded to the North Nashville home of Bobbie & Clifton Peoples, who have been married for 54 years, on Thursday afternoon. Clifton Peoples made the call to police, and met them outside where he explained he had just returned from the store when his wife opened the back door of the home demanded to know what he had done with the painting of a dog she was working on, which she said was special as it was in memory of her daughter.
Mr. Peoples reports he told her he didn’t do anything with the painting, and that’s when she pointed a black handgun at him, and he says he feared for his life. When police interviewed Bobbie Peoples, she stated that her husband was abusive and she was afraid of him. When asked for the gun she pointed at her husband, she directed police to a loaded .38 Special, however, Mr. Peoples says that was not the gun she used to point at him, and he had never seen the .38 special until this moment.
With the admission that she did point a gun at her husband, Bobbie J. Peoples was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail at 4:24 p.m. on March 18th. After serving the state-mandated 12-hour hold for domestic violence charges, she was released on a $3,500 bond, via Able Bonding. She is scheduled to appear in court in August.
