Metro Nashville Police were dispatched to the Millennium Maxwell House Hotel in North Nashville Tuesday after 22-year-old Rikaia Jackson refused to pay for her room.

19-year-old Jayden Lawrence is charged with the assault of Dr. Andre Bean, the Director of the Men’s Initiative at Tennessee State University. In what may be the most poorly written arrest warrant we’ve ever published, Sgt. Horace Green of the TSU Police Department doesn’t specify how the alleged assault happened but lists Dr. Bean as the victim. The Sgt was escorted to the alleged fight by Arch Angel Security on Monday afternoon to find a large group of students gathered in a circle in the hallway. When he arrived, Dr. Bean was restraining Jayden Lawrence but never actually alleged any assault took place. Lawrence requested medical attention, was evaluated at Metro General, then transported to booking.
Campus police responded to a fight at TSU’s Ford Residential Complex, where 6 females reportedly attacked Nona Boyd because she had moved into the complex three weeks ago and was living with Cyndee Arnold, which was against the rules. As police arrived and attempted to determine what was happening, and who was involved, Jada Gober initially pointed to other parties involved and indicated who was fighting, including another person leaving in a vehicle, Octavian Williams. During the absolute madness and confusion, 20-year-old Jada Gober approached officers and struck Nona Boyd in the face, and another fight erupted with the pair falling to the ground. Police separated these two when 20-year-old Shantell Banks ran from the parking lot and attacked Nona Boyd from behind, striking and kicking her, leaving her injured and bruised.
22-year-old Jordan Woods was booked into the Metro Nasvhille Jail just before daylight Sunday, after officers found him asleep behind the wheel of a vehicle that was parked in the middle of an intersection with his engine and lights off, with the keys out of the ignition. As officers observed cars maneuver around him they knocked on the window and eventually woke him from his slumber. He claimed to be “waiting on a text message” to tell him where to go. It was unclear how long he had been asleep at the intersection. Woods performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was charged with DUI and for a bag of marijuana found inside his jacket pocket. He is free on pre-trial release and listed a TSU campus dorm as his bond-out address.
