54-year-old Terrell Thornhill is free on a $15,000 bond, after being booked into the Metro Nashville jail on outstanding warrants charging him with domestic assault and violating an order of protection. Court records allege on November 27th Thornhill’s ex-girlfriend, Tia Renee Blanton, reported the pair got into an argument at her apartment and she was struck in the face during a scuffle. Officers documented visible injures to the victim, and verified she had an active order of protection with which Thornhill had already been served. Thornhill was released on bond after the state-mandated 12-hour hold for domestic violence charges.
