34-year-old Charles Gregory Knalls is charged with aggravated burglary after he broke through the window of a West Nashville home and grabbed the leg of a sleeping female resident. Her screams alerted another person in the home, who used the nearest object he could find, a vibrator, to subdue the burglar and keep him at bay.
A 15-year-old child says her mother, Shaton Eubanks, and her ‘auntie’, Shawntese Bradford’ punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground. One of the pair is then alleged to have beat her with a belt, and drug her outside by the hair – where the other adult then repeatedly punched her in the face and also assaulted her with a belt. The victim sustained multiple injuries from the attack.
21-year-old Kevin Prusinowski is charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and vandalism charges after police say he threatened to stab his juvenile brother with a large kitchen knife, then followed him outside to his car, which he then spray-painted a swastika on while the teen brother was inside the vehicle filming the encounter.
21-year-old Jeffrey Turner was taken into custody at the Tin Roof Broadway after police say he was not making sense due to believing he was living in the TV show “Sons of Anarchy”, and shattered a glass bottle on the wall when the bartender didn’t know how to make a cocktail from on the show.
The #BearMaceBandit strikes again, this time police say he sprayed his boyfriend with the powerful irritant during an argument last August in the middle of the pandemic. Police say Masi Kingston, 29, used the spray that’s 3x the power of police issued spray and travels 35 feet, on his boyfriend before driving a vehicle into his boyfriend’s vehicle, while he was inside it. Police found the victim with broken glass on his eye and nose, blood on his shirt, and drenched in milk, from an attempt to ease the pain of the bear mace.
33-year-old Muhamed Albarti is charged in the shooting of a man at Paul’s market, where he works. Albarti says he only “shot at the ground in his direction”, however, the victim suffered gunshot wounds in both of his legs. A handgun was collected from the scene, and security footage confirmed Albarti was the shooter. This is but the latest in a long series of problems at the Jefferson Street market – including the open sales of guns and narcotics, and the owner publishing video of himself brutally beating a man with a baseball bat.
Masi Kingston is the latest to be charged in series of Mapco thefts from 2019. He was served overnight as he was transferred into the Metro Nashville Jail. He will join two more co-defendants, Jerock Walker and Annisha Holmes, who were previously arrested, on their next court date to answer to the charges.
In the first of our monthly “drop-ins”, where Scoop: Nashville will celebrate Black-owned businesses or events in Nashville, we attended a comedic roast of Scoop: Nashville founder, Jason Steen. The roast, presented by Comedian Herman Black, who goes by ‘Da Herm’ at his ‘Out East Comedy Club’ was an experience that left many wondering if he understood what a ‘roast’ was intended to be? Thankfully, his opening act saved the day, with an amazing set by Comedian Leroy. Throughout the hour+ performance, Da Herm deflected attention away from his attempts at humor by choosing to wear some of the world’s most defining sweat pants that left little to the imagination during #SweatPantsSeason, so the audience had at least one of their senses stimulated during the performance. Though he roasted Steen about his recent run-in with the law, ‘Da Herm’ failed to mention his history of getting caught with his pants down at a local park, or his own burglary and theft charges, or how the police once tricked him into selling the things he stole back to them in a sting.
27-year-old Elic Hugh Page IV is charged with domestic assault after police found him standing over his boyfriend with his knuckles and pants covered in blood. His boyfriend, who had been beaten and kicked in the head by Page, says he thought he was going to die, and lost consciousness during the assault. Page is free on a $1,000 bond, with conditions set by a commissioner – which he has continued to ignore, without repercussions.
Aspiring social media influencer identical twins Jacob Christopher Baez & Jared Christian Baez were arrested Sunday morning after being unable to pay the $17,874.74 tab they ran up at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row for their 24th birthday celebration. The pair each posted a $5,000 bond Sunday afternoon. Reached via phone, the twins stated they hoped they’d be verified on Instagram and get a lot of news coverage, and they would be “legends” for this weekend.
