Let’s set the scene: Claude Hudgens and Jamella Garrett live together in an apartment in Madison. Joy Newman previously lived in the apartment with them. Claude and Joy were previously in a dating relationship. On November 7th, police responded to the apartment after Jamella stated she heard a loud noise at the door, and Claude opened it. 25-year-old Joy Newman pushed her way into the apartment while Claude attempted to restrain her from moving toward Jamella. Joy made her way to the kitchen, where she armed herself with a large kitchen knife for a short time before Claude disarmed her. Joy then got in Jamella’s face while screaming she wanted “her blood!”
Joy L. Newman of Due West Ave in Madison, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 8th, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $2,500.
