31-year-old Oklahoma tourist Timothy ‘TJ’ Nooner is charged with the felony aggravated assault of a man in downtown Nashville. Police say Nooner assaulted and knocked Todd Callahan unconscious at the corner of 3rd & Broadway, leaving him with serious head injuries, contusions, abrasions, and lacerations.
