Emily Cross told Metro Police she wanted her father arrested for harassment, due to him sending her unwanted emails and mailed letters over the last several years because she refused to take her daughter to church. She met with a magistrate, and now the 74-year-old grandfather is free on a $1,000 bond.
Metro Police responded to a domestic disturbance disturbance at Nashville’s temporary Night Court location Saturday morning. Upon arrival they found the victim and her ex-girlfriend, Onneka Crutcher causing a commotion. The victim reports a threat of “Hoe, I will kill you” made by Crutcher.
No one performed a simple to check to see if a woman was already in jail when the crime was committed. A MNPD officer swore a probable cause affidavit saying she did it, a night court magistrate signed the warrant, and the DA prepared to prosecute it. The Office of Professional Accountability calls it a “simple mistake”.
