32-year-old Tyler Fogarty is charged with domestic assault and vandalism after a series of visits to his ex-girlfriend’s home this week using a spare key he retained. The victim reports on the first night she sustained bruises to her arms and chest after he pulled her from a bathroom toilet, dragging her across the floor in an attempt to take her iPhone due to being jealous over her dating another man. The following night, he reappeared at 3 a.m. wearing a bathrobe and again confronted her about the same issue. During this visit, he was able to take the phone and the victim was able to use her Apple Watch to call 911 as he destroyed her iPhone after looking through it. Tyler Fogarty is free on a $4,500 bond.
32-year-old Melinda Collins is charged with the aggravated assault of her wife after the couple reminisced about the glory days of Nelly as they attended his concert in Nashville Sunday night. It was not ‘Just a Dream’ when the victim, Carmenita Collins, says she returned to the car, in which her wife had already returned to take a nap, possibly because it was ‘Hot In Here’ at Bridgestone Arena and she was tired of shaking her tail feather. It is unclear if Collins was wearing her ‘Air Force Ones’ when she reportedly attacked her wife without provocation, punching her, kicking her, and leaving her on the ground with a tooth that had also been knocked loose, in addition to multiple bruises and scratches, as documented in an arrest report. Collins is free on a $10,000 bond.
Metro police say 31-year-old John Breckenridge was having a “panic attack” when they arrived at a Poplar Creek Road address, where he had shot Ronald Pratt in what a witness describes as an argument and scuffle over Breckenridge’s wife. An arrest warrant alleges that Breckenridge knocked on the front door of the home and Pratt’s mother opened the door. When Ronald Pratt went outside, an argument and scuffle ensued in the front yard, and witnesses heard a gunshot, followed by Ronald Pratt coming back inside and falling on the floor, freshly shot in the abdomen.
Breckenridge’s father was standing by outside the residence in a pickup truck, but Breckenridge didn’t flee as he suffered an injury to his ear and was having a panic attack, which resulted in him also being transported to the hospital. Breckenridge refused to be interviewed and remains jailed in lieu of a $100,000 bond, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
25-year-old tourist Corey Oakes, from Kentucky, is charged with tampering with evidence and public intoxication after he carried his friend, who shot himself in the leg in downtown Nashville while drinking, on a bird scooter back to the Cambria hotel and parked him at the entrance while he returned to their room upstairs to hide the gun. When police responded to the shooting call at the hotel they located the victim and Oakes, who was extremely intoxicated, and admitted his friend “may have possibly shot himself” and admitted to returning the gun to their room. Oakes is free on pre-trial release.
