20-year-old Jackson Barfield was involved in a domestic disturbance with Eva Thompson, a friend, at Club Play in Downtown Nashville on November 11th. Thompson told officers that she invited Barfield for protection since she was going to Nashville, so she picked him up, got to the bar, and they sat in the parking lot and drank some alcohol before going inside. She said this was when Barfield told her, “You better not be talking to other guys in there.” They went inside Play, which is one of Nashville’s prominent LGBT bars, and Barfield went to the bathroom as Thompson started to dance with other guys on the stage. Barfield returned from the restroom, grabbed her by the ankle, and grabbed her by the dress as she leaned down to talk, pulled her off the stage, held her against the wall, and struck her in the face. Club Play’s Security broke up the incident, and Barfield fled and texted Thompson that he was in her car. Security went and collected Thompson’s keys and told her to leave, so she called her mom to pick her up since she had been drinking. Barfield was taken into custody for domestic assault on November 22nd.
Jackson Barfield of Brookvalley Circle in Mt. Juliet, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 22, charged with domestic assault. He is free on a $1,500 bond.
