22-year-old Nisel Andrews was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail Tuesday, charged with felony aggravated assault. Police arrived at the Antioch residence on a domestic call, and both Andrews and her boyfriend, Luis Polanco, had the same account of events. An argument broke out in the bedroom and then moved downstairs where Andrews says she became “very angry” and grabbed a knife. She chased Polanco with the knife in her hand, though he says he wasn’t in fear, and she says he had no intention of actually hurting him. Due to the domestic relationship and the agreed-upon narrative from both parties, Andrews was determined to be the primary aggressor and was taken into custody. She is charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and is free on a $1,000 bond.
28-year-old Colin Beason has, once again, been caught doing return fraud at a retail store that employed him. In 2019, we covered his felony theft arrest for pocketing $1800 in cash from fraudulent returns from GameStop. District Attorney Glenn Funk agreed to give him a deferred judgment with no conviction for that charge, and he moved on without a guilty plea on his record. Beason now works for Locker Room by Lids at Opry Mills Mall. Earlier this week, the store notified Metro Police they had determined Beason had stolen $4,718.30 in cash from fraudulent returns. Beason signed a confession in the case, and because of the prior deal with DA Funk, has no prior conviction. Beason, who studied finance at MTSU, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail, charged with felony theft, and is free on a $2,500 bond.
23-year-old Elijah Hargrove is charged with the domestic assault of his ex-girlfriend, Brittnei Carney, after she made her way into his home and found him with his new girlfriend, under the guise of “looking for a key”. His roommate let the ex-girlfriend into the house to look for the key, and while she was there, along with her little cousin, Hargrove emerged from his bedroom but blocked the door, and the ex-girlfriend soon realized he had another woman in the bedroom of his house. A dramatic argument ensued, resulting in him being accused of pushing his ex-girlfriend, gripping her color, and pulling her to the ground while allegedly holding her down by the neck. The ex-girlfriend went before a magistrate and got a private prosecution warrant for domestic assault. Hargrove was booked on the outstanding warrant on Saturday and is free on a $1,000 bond.
27-year-old Calvin Woods Jr., who prefers to be known as ‘Big Geeche’, and has a recent release titled “Found Guilty”, is once again charged with assaulting a lover. In this most recent case, his girlfriend, Cayla Yates, called 911 to report he grabbed her by the throat with both hands as she attempted to stop him from taking a pair of AirPods, which he had bought for her, from her purse. She eventually grabbed a knife in what she describes as “self-defense”, and says he cut his own hand by grabbing it. Woods told police during an interview that he only pushed her away when she pulled a knife on him. He was determined to be the primary aggressor and was taken into custody. He is charged with aggravated assault/strangulation and is free on a $10,000 bond.
In 2018, Woods was charged with the assault of a former girlfriend after police documented laceration injuries of the female he wrestled to the ground and tossed her phone in a dumpster so she couldn’t call 911. DA Glenn Funk retired those charges, as long as he promised to not get in trouble again. A few months later, Woods was charged with dragging the same girlfriend across the floor by her hair in front of children, after he punched her in the face multiple times. Police also documented those injures, but DA Glenn Funk refused to move forward with the prosecution in July of this year when the girlfriend backed out of testifying, despite the already collected evidence.
27-year-old Shonda Reid was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail Tuesday, charged with the domestic assault of her husband after she punched him in the face. Her husband, Zeico Reid, reportedly came home after sleeping at a friend’s house overnight to pick up some clothing. When he entered the apartment, Shonda became irate and they argued. As Zeico attempted to grab some clothes to leave again Shonda punched him in the face with a closed fist, leaving a visible injury. She is free on a $1,000 bond.
24-year-old Nathan Alderman, from North Carolina, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail after police found him in downtown Nashville standing over another person who he was fighting, and wasn’t letting the person get up off the ground. Officers commanded him to step away so the situation could de-escalate but he refused and would not obey any commands from police. Due to his extreme level of intoxication, he was transported to booking and charged with public intoxication.
31-year-old Dominique Thomas is charged with the aggravated assault of her brother, Marcus Price, after she attacked him with a purse in her left hand and a straight-edge razor in her right hand, as he was on the couch. The victim suffered a severe slice wound directly between his eyes. As he called the police she fled the scene. Police and medics responded, and a felony warrant was issued for her arrest. The argument reportedly was over her choice to use drugs rather than drive their mother to the store.
Two days later as officers were attempting to serve the felony warrant on Thomas, they blocked her vehicle in and activated their blue lights as she fled toward her apartment with officers in a foot chase. Officers took her into custody, and found her with a glass pipe with narcotic residue in her pocket. She remains jailed in lieu of a $45,000 bond, charged with felony aggravated assault, drug paraphernalia, evading arrest, and resisting arrest.
Metro police say 31-year-old John Breckenridge was having a “panic attack” when they arrived at a Poplar Creek Road address, where he had shot Ronald Pratt in what a witness describes as an argument and scuffle over Breckenridge’s wife. An arrest warrant alleges that Breckenridge knocked on the front door of the home and Pratt’s mother opened the door. When Ronald Pratt went outside, an argument and scuffle ensued in the front yard, and witnesses heard a gunshot, followed by Ronald Pratt coming back inside and falling on the floor, freshly shot in the abdomen.
Breckenridge’s father was standing by outside the residence in a pickup truck, but Breckenridge didn’t flee as he suffered an injury to his ear and was having a panic attack, which resulted in him also being transported to the hospital. Breckenridge refused to be interviewed and remains jailed in lieu of a $100,000 bond, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
