41-year-old James Casey was jailed on May 28th after throwing a cooking pot at his girlfriend’s face during an argument at their home on Autumn Drive. Police responded and spoke with Shelley Moore, who said she and Casey were in the garage arguing, and she became agitated, so she threw a chair to the ground and headed back inside. According to Moore, as she was closing the door, she saw Casey grab the red cooking pot, and she knew he was going to throw it at her, but she didn’t shut the door fast enough.
Police observed a large dent in the pot, and the handle was broken. Moore had a large knot above her right eye and a small cut above her left. Casey told police that Moore threw the chair at him and then the cooking pot. According to Casey, after she threw the pot, he grabbed it and threw it in her direction. Casey said he didn’t mean to hit Moore with the pot; it hit her after hitting the door. Police saw a scrape on his left that he said was from the chair. Due to the severity of Moore’s injuries, Casey was determined as the primary aggressor.
James E. Casey was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on May 28th, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $3,500.
