18-year-old David Ezekiel Ridley had a domestic incident with his girlfriend, Kaliya Vaughn, at their Burning Tree Drive apartment in the early hours of November 28th, 2023. Vaughn alerted the authorities, advising them that they argued about him smoking a cigarette inside their unit. Vaughn said that Ridley kicked her in the “Coochie” after she asked him to smoke outside, and then he scratched the back of her neck before biting her cheek. Vaughn stated that Ridley broke her belongings while throwing things around the apartment. A warrant was issued for his arrest for domestic assault.

Then, on February 26th, detectives located and followed a stolen, dark-colored Honda Civic behind Green Street, which was a dead end. Four young black males dressed in dark clothing exited the Civic and began to flee on foot, disregarding the officers announcing themselves. Several suspects, including Ridley, were seen running behind Pecker’s Bar and Grill on Hermitage Avenue. Then, officers found Ridley trying to conceal himself in the brush and detained him. Under Miranda, Ridley admitted to occupying the front seat of the stolen Civic. Officers were then notified about Ridley having an outstanding warrant from Davidson County as they identified the other involved occupants, two of them being juveniles. Ridley was taken into custody for domestic assault, evading arrest, the unauthorized use of a vehicle, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor on February 27th.
