25-year-old Andrew McSkimming is charged with the assault of his Uber driver, Abdelshahid Bishwy Bahgatayyad, after he punched him in the face and then punched him in the balls. The victim says they had arrived at the dropoff location, and McSkimming was extremely intoxicated and when he was asked to get out of the Uber, McSkimming punched the driver in the face.
Both parties then exited the vehicle as McSmimming began to hit the vehicle with his fists. McSkimming then punched the victim in the groin with his fist. Officers were issuing Andrew McSkimming a state citation for assault when he became combative with officers and continued his threatening behavior. They placed him into custody and transported him to booking.
Police say 28-year-old Tia Lavon Sharp used a hammer to destroy 2 passenger side mirrors and two windshields on separate vehicles, a tail light on another vehicle, and a mailbox, all belonging to the father of her unborn child, Gerald Willingham. Willingham says she caught him cheating and began attacking cars in his driveway. Willingham’s wife, Amanda, also witnessed the incident.
Sharp claims that her “baby daddy” is abusive, and they drove from Columbia with his wife, and Sharp wanted to leave but claims Willingham was after her Social Security money “on her card.” She says she only had a hammer because he has “pit bulls that is trained to attack,” and she had the hammer for self-defense but didn’t destroy anything.
Just before 1 a.m. on a Saturday morning in August, police responded to the Plum Nelly Circle home of 54-year-old Charles ‘Chuck’ Heron to find him lying in the bushes near the side of the road after he had crashed his motorcycle on the roadway and sustained injuries. He stated he had been drinking earlier in the night and had consumed two Miller Lite tall boys. He appeared to be very intoxicated and then began to fall asleep and become incoherent. He reportedly told one of the Nashville Fire medics he had been drinking and “f-*ked up,” and they relayed that information to officers. He was transported to the hospital for his injuries and level of intoxication and was issued a state citation for DUI. He was booked on that citation this week.
