The argument continued, and she punched him with her fists, as witnessed by his father, who owns the home.

32-year-old Melinda Collins is charged with the aggravated assault of her wife after the couple reminisced about the glory days of Nelly as they attended his concert in Nashville Sunday night. It was not ‘Just a Dream’ when the victim, Carmenita Collins, says she returned to the car, in which her wife had already returned to take a nap, possibly because it was ‘Hot In Here’ at Bridgestone Arena and she was tired of shaking her tail feather. It is unclear if Collins was wearing her ‘Air Force Ones’ when she reportedly attacked her wife without provocation, punching her, kicking her, and leaving her on the ground with a tooth that had also been knocked loose, in addition to multiple bruises and scratches, as documented in an arrest report. Collins is free on a $10,000 bond.
