44-year-old Ebikebina Elvis Seifegha was jailed on April 8th on an outstanding warrant from April 2020 when he went to his attorney’s office to pay a portion of legal fees, and things didn’t go as planned. John Iwu is an immigration attorney and told police that Seiegha dropped off $300. However, as John placed the money in his pocket, he informed Seifegha that the money would go towards fees he alleges he had never agreed to. During this conversation, Seifegha became enraged and started fighting and pushing the attorney to get the money back. During the fight, Seifegha got the money back from John’s pocket and kept him from entering his office to call the police. He left shortly after, but the attorney provided police with his personal information, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
20-year-old Maccdousha Faulaau, a Fort Campbell Soldier, was jailed this week on an outstanding warrant from March when he assaulted his girlfriend, Mokadesha Williams, in their apartment on Centennial Boulevard. Police spoke with Ms. Williams, who also stated that Mr. Fualaau has a military warrant as he is stationed at Fort Campbell and has been AWOL since November.
Earlier in the day on March 28th, she and Faulaau got into an argument in their bedroom. At some point during the argument, he grabbed her forearms and slung her around the kitchen. Ms. Williams then punched him in the head with her right hand. Faulaau grabbed her and threw her on the couch in the living room and then onto the floor in the bedroom. When the fight stopped, she told him she was going to call the police, so he grabbed her cell phone out of her hands. She tried to leave, but there was only one door in the apartment, and she couldn’t get by him to go. She tried to yell for help out of the window, but Faulaau grabbed her and pulled her back from the window.
He kept her trapped in the apartment for over two hours without a phone. Ms. Williams then asked to use her phone to call her mom, and he agreed, but while Ms. Williams was speaking with her mother on speaker phone, her mother told her to call the police. That’s when Faulaau grabbed a knife from the kitchen and fled on foot. Ms. Williams had several bruises and scratches on her right forearm. Her shirt was torn, and she had abrasions on her left breast.

He then snatched her phone and destroyed it. After he fled a second time, a concerned citizen transported her to a safe place to contact the police.
73-year-old Elaine McCarty Nugent, of Joelton, is charged with the wild aggravated domestic assault of her grown son using a candlestick holder, leaving him with three bloody severe lacerations to the top of his head. When confronted about the assault, she tried to downplay that anything happened, eventually blaming her own son, saying he must have injured himself since he was “mentally ill and suicidal,” a claim she attempted to use multiple times. She was “verbally combative and uncooperative” during the investigation, according to officers. Her disdain for the law and law enforcement isn’t anything new, as she frequently ignores court dates and will be extradited to Sumner County when she’s done in Nashville to face multiple failures to appear and a DUI case she’s been avoiding there since 2019.
