18-year-old Nicholas Newman ran out of gas on I65 and called his father for help when an argument ensued Wednesday. The father, Burton Newman, reported the incident at a local hospital Wednesday night, and police spoke with him about the incident. He said after he arrived, and they argued, Nicholas punched him in the leg and hit his car with a gas can. Police noted a bruise on Burton’s calve, a crack in his windshield, and minor dents in his car. Police went to I65 to find Nicholas but could not locate him. No one witnessed the vandalism; they both refused services, and Burton said he was unsure if he wanted to prosecute. Police prosecuted on Burton’s behalf due to the bruise on his leg.
Nicholas B. Newman was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 21st, charged with domestic assault with bodily injury and vandalism. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,500.
