24-year-old Michael Strini was found in Downtown Nashville late Saturday night inside a car that didn’t belong to him, which he had destroyed by smashing the windshield, driver’s window, and mirror. Police say he was sweating profusely on a cool, rainy night, and left multiple dents and bloody body prints on the vehicle. He told police he had been “drinking heavily”, and later posted a $2,000 cash bond. Strini recently moved to Spring Hill, TN, where he noted on social media he was “visiting Nashville for a few months”.
29-year-old Joshua Mantooth is charged with felony aggravated assault/strangulation and misdemeanor domestic assault after his girlfriend reported he punched her repeatedly in the face on the drive home, and then strangled her over and over once back at their residence. Police found the victim’s face cut open, bruised, swollen, and still bleeding when they arrived… but court documents now reveal that wasn’t the only time he’s been abusive against women.
