Bellwood Park Apartments says 43-year-old Charletta Braden was formally evicted from her Pennington Avenue apartment via the proper court process, and a few days later they sent employee Jonathan Haynes to perform a regular maintenance check of the apartment, which should have been vacated. As he knocked on the door and announced himself as he does when entering all units, he received no response. HE then used a master key to open the door, which Charletta Braden swung open from the inside, catching his ring in the key and pulling him inside. Braden had a large wooden stick which she used to swing and hit Haynes in the head, leaving him injured. He retreated to the office until police arrived.
Charletta Braden, of Pennington Ave in East Nashville, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 14th, charged with assault. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $1,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave her pre-trial release from their facility.
