22-year-old Halee Anne Persinger and the father of her children, Isaiah Cooke, were visiting her parents earlier this week when she became upset that she no longer had custody of her children and couldn’t take them back with her. Both her mother and Isaiah told police about her history of drug use and that she was currently withdrawing from cocaine and was acting erratically. When Isaiah took her outside to attempt to defuse the situation away from the children, she punched him in the face, which was also witnessed by her mother, Leslie Jones.
Halee Anne Persinger was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 10th, charged with domestic assault with bodily injury. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $1,500.
