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. The incident, which happened in November, was captured on MNPD cameras, and detectives were eventually able to confirm Nooner’s identity via social media. They worked with the Pittsburg County Sheriff’s Office in Oklahoma and produced a photo lineup, and the victim positively identified Nooner as his assailant. He was booked into jail this week on the charge.
27-year-old British tourist Elliot Williams faces charges from two separate incidents this week in downtown Nashville. On Tuesday, he and a friend, Patrick Doran, were harassing multiple vendors on Broadway. Williams punched Conor Patrick Wall in the face, causing him to fall and hit his head. The victim was transported to Vanderbilt, where the attending physician said he may have sustained a brain injury. Williams fled the scene back to his room at the DoubleTree Hotel, where police were called a short time later after he reportedly assaulted his wife, Jenny Moore. She states the two were in an argument, and when she tried to leave the hotel room, he blocked the doorway and struck her in the face. She had a busted lip and was bleeding from the assault, along with a small pool of blood on the bed. During this interaction, police recognized Williams from the earlier incident on Broadway, and he was taken into custody for both incidents.

Ross Kovacs, a managing partner of the restaurant, attempted to intervene and was struck in the head with a candlestick holder by Coombs. He sustained a bleeding laceration to the head, and a warrant was taken out for Coombs.
Metro Nashville Police say 30-year-old Nicholas Shandik, a well-known barback in the local service industry, along with an accomplice, attempted to steal a vending machine from Kid Rock’s bar at 1 a.m. on a Tuesday morning in May. Bar security confronted Shandick and his accomplice as they were on the elevator with the vending machine. The pair claimed the vending machine was being “taken for repairs,” which turned out not to be true. When they realized they were caught, they attempted to ambush two members of the security staff, charging up and attempting to push past them in an attempt to escape. As security detained them, Shandik struck one of the bouncers with an elbow strike and grabbed onto the other bouncer’s head. One of the bouncers was an off-duty officer. Citations were initially issued; however, Shandik failed to self-book and was taken into custody this week on all of the charges.
