Metro Nashville Police say 29-year-old Octavious Bates was “intoxicated and uncooperative” when they encountered him as the subject of a domestic assault call on Stratford Avenue. His ex-girlfriend, Kira Mercedes McKenzie, says she invited him over to visit, and at some point, he got drunk and became disorderly. During a subsequent argument, she says Bates grabbed both of her arms and lifted her against a wall, holding her there. Officers documented injuries and bruises to her forearm and bicep.
Octavious D. Bates of Eagle St in Murfreesboro, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 18th, charged with domestic assault with bodily injury. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,500.
