Nashville Police say 43-year-old Jamie Westerhoff drove her car into a tree next to oncoming traffic early Wednesday. She was sitting in the driver’s seat with the vehicle still in drive when officers arrived. She was unable to provide police with words in any order that made much sense, but she did blow a 0.247% BAC on the breathalyzer — over three times the legal limit in Tennessee. She was too intoxicated to perform field sobriety tests at the scene without being a danger to herself.
31-year-old Zein Sheikh was out on a $75,000 bond for cocaine charges when he was arrested again this week, now additionally charged with felony aggravated assault/strangulation of his co-defendant in the cocaine case, Kally Dobak. He also had Kally arrested for assault the week prior to them both being indicted on the cocaine charges. In the new case against Sheikh, which was captured on building security cameras, he comes into the hallway in his underwear and pulls Dobak into their apartment, placing her into a choke-hold during an argument.
Steven Gates told police he had his girlfriend, 22-year-old Jada Smith, to his home Tuesday night for his “birthday celebrations”. He says Jada became “belligerently drunk” and began to argue, and he felt he was “unable to handle” the situation and called police for assistance and asked them to remove Jada from his home. Officers offered Jada a ride home multiple times or to even arrange a ride for her if she was uncomfortable riding with the police. She refused all offers of assistance, refused to leave, and eventually had to be separated from Mr. Gates as she was coming at him. As officers decided to place her into custody for trespass she fought them and tried kicking officers in the face. She refused to walk to the patrol car and had t be essentially carried, and then placed inside as she refused to get in the car.
As a young woman walked alone in Midtown late Monday evening, she says a man began to “cat all” her, and as she continued past him she says he firmly grabbed her arm. As she began to fight back, he reportedly told her he was going to rape her. She was able to break away from the man, identified as 30-year-old Patrick Schiebel, and flee to a nearby apartment building with a visible concierge who let her inside and called 911. Metro Nashville Police officers located the man but refused to charge him themselves since they didn’t witness it. MNPD escorted the victim to night court, where a magistrate signed a simple assault private prosecution warrant. The tourist was jailed for 153 minutes before being given pre-trial release and set free, despite a magistrate setting his bond at $10,000.
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.
