“Finger gun” threats: Taxi Driver charged with assault after musician David Pomeroy says he ‘felt threatened’

Nashville musician David Pomeroy says he noticed an “illegal taxi cab” parked in the “loading zone used for musicians” near 4th & Broadway in downtown Nashville in late July. He took it upon himself to approach this taxi driver and demanded he move, immediately. The driver, 47-year-old Hashim Wachamo, reportedly pointed his “finger guns” at Pomery, in a manner he described as “very aggressive” while allegedly saying he was going to “shoot… and get you”. Pomeroy says he felt threatened, and eventually went to see a judicial magistrate two weeks later, who then signed a private prosecution warrant for assault. Wachamo was booked on the outstanding warrant over the weekend, at which time a magistrate released him on his own recognizance.
