19-year-old Jasmine Scales is free on a $20,000 bond after police say she brutally attacked and beat a co-worker unconscious in the back of a Walmart store on February 28th. Store surveillance video shows her leaving the unconscious female on the floor and casually walking out of the store with the person she arrived with.
Jasmine Scales was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail Sunday afternoon on an outstanding felony aggravated assault warrant. Police say Scales went to the Walmart on Hamilton Church Rd in Antioch while she was not working, and located a 17-year-old female co-worker with who she had an ongoing dispute about a video posted to social media by the victim and her friends.
Scales caught the teen as she was walking near the back of the store to dispose of trash and asked when she got off work and stated she wanted “her and all her friends”. Videos from both store surveillance and a cell phone show that without any further warning, Scales then hit the victim in the head, taking her to the ground.
Once on the ground, Jasmine Scales repeatedly hit the victim and slammed her head into the concrete floor over and over. She then climbs on top of the lifeless victim and continues to hit her in the head until she’s on the concrete unconscious and unresponsive.
Police say Scales then gets off the victim and casually walks away and out of the store with the person she arrived with. The victim sustained multiple injuries and suffered a concussion. A warrant was issued for the arrest of Scales.
Jasmine M. Scales was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail Sunday at 5:53 p.m., charged with felony aggravated assault. At 10:41 p.m., Scales posted a $20,000 bond and was released from custody. She is scheduled to appear in court in early May.
