Metro Nashville Police Officers working the Entertainment District Initiative in downtown Nashville Saturday responded to 6th & Broadway, where they observed 20-year-old Hunter Bilyeu yelling and fighting another individual. Officers separated the parties, and the victim did not want to press assault charges. Officers told Bilyeu to go on about his night and leave the area, but he refused and continued to be aggressive and once again started to fight the other individual in front of police. He was taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct.
24-year-old Jalen Matthews is charged with the aggravated assault and strangulation of his girlfriend while in Whiskey Row in downtown Nashville. Police say an “anonymous male” who stated he was ‘intervening on the female’s behalf’ and Matthews were in a fight when they arrived. The other male was neither named nor prosecuted.
