Known Scammer Paul Aniel free on $250 bond after over 140 arrests

Since 2010, 57-year-old Paul Aniel has had hundreds of interactions with police in Middle Tennessee, with over 140 of them resulting in his arrest and over 60 of those resulting in guilty pleas. Despite being at it for 14 years, his operation hasn’t changed much — he parks his car near an offramp and desperately waves his arms to signal oncoming traffic he is in distress. Once someone stops, he tells them he urgently needs money for his fraud of the day. If they refuse to help, he becomes angered, placing several in fear of assault. He even unknowingly flagged down an unmarked police car in 2020. During the last week, Metro police received over a dozen calls that Paul was back at his scam at multiple locations. He was located near Haywood Lane on May 8th but told police he was “just talking to people.” Unconvinced by his excuse and having observed him actively soliciting, officers again took Aniel into custody. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $250, which he paid in cash and walked out the door despite his criminal history. 

19-year-old Ashley Robinson jumps on baby-daddy’s car during argument over childcare

19-year-old Ashley Nikole Robinson had a domestic altercation with the father of her child, Masaiyis White, at their Bridgecrest Drive townhouse on April 18th. Robinson called the police, stating she was assaulted by White, adding that they had been arguing since Monday regarding child care for their son. She told officers that White had brought their son to her grandmother’s house to drop him off, but she told him he could not leave him there because she had work in the morning. Then, she stated that after he dropped their kid off, she tried to enter his car without his permission, requesting he take her to the store, but he would not let her in. Robinson said the door was locked, so she tried pulling it and would not let go, prompting White to drive away to get her off of his car. Robinson then said he exited his vehicle, walked over to her, and slapped her cell phone out of her hand. Then, she threw a rock at him, causing them to fall into the bushes.

When officers spoke with White, he confirmed they had been arguing about child care. White then admitted to slapping Robinson’s phone away from her after she threw a fist-sized rock at the side of his head. He said that she rushed towards him and pushed him into the bushes, where she continued to throw rocks at him. White said he was trying to leave the complex when Robinson jumped on his car, trying to break his windshield. After discovering she had a previous domestic incident where she assaulted him and admitted to attacking him, officers deemed her as the primary aggressor. Robinson was then taken into custody for domestic assault.
