Crystal Meyer reported that her boyfriend, 46-year-old Richard Allen Anthony, slapped her and gouged her eye before he left their hotel room at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, where they were visiting from Oklahoma. Metro Nashville Police arrived, and officers documented swelling on the victim, and her eye was red. Officers located Anthony, who told them nothing happened and “perhaps she got into it with someone else after I left the room.” Hotel security checked the cameras, and no one entered or left other than Anthony.
