22-year-old Michael Rafei is charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he grabbed a frying pan from the sink and charged at his brother, Matthew Rafei, when he was asked to wash the dishes. Matthew says the simple request made his brother “irate.” He was able to grab the frying pan as it came toward him and take it away from Michael. A witness, William Bowen, corroborated the assault.
Michael A. Rafei was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 4th, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $3,500.
