Metro Nashville Police say 25-year-old Makayla Dodge got into an argument with her roommate, Alexander Leavitt, over a GrubHub order. She reportedly told him to leave the residence and threw his pizza at him. He attempted to push her out of his room, but she was able to use her body to prevent the door from closing and pulled his hair in an effort to come back into his room. She then grabbed a pair of scissors and chased him into another room while she attempted to stab him with the scissors. He was able to disarm her and throw the scissors outside. She did manage to land several punches to his face during the struggle, leaving him bruised and swollen.
Rayshonda Crawford, who is 8 months pregnant, says 38-year-old Cameron Eason, with who she also has a child, entered her home without permission, and that it has been an ongoing issue since he moved out two months ago. She told police when it happened this weekend, she grabbed a knife in self-defense and demanded that he leave her home. He refused and a struggle ensued over the knife, which was captured on video, and threatened to kill her. As police were investigating, Eason came back onto her property in an aggressive manner toward her, stopping just inches from her as she screamed for help from the officers he threatened to punch her in the face. Police took Eason into custody and transported him to booking.
30-year-old Kevin Jones was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail early Sunday morning after a fight at Honky Tonk Central on Broadway in downtown Nashville. Police say after they separated the dueling parties Jones continued to attempt to strike the other person. Jones was taken into custody.
26-year-old Patrick Conquest was arrested twice within two days this month. On October 9th he began arguing with his roommate, from separate rooms within the same house, over social media, transitioning over several platforms during the argument, with both text and audio messages, including “we can scrap!” He escalated to using racial slurs against his roommate, Vincent Mendoza, then entered his bedroom and struck him with a broom, and knocked down the TV.
Conquest went to jail, and posted a $3500 bond, only to be arrested again 12-hours later when police responded to another disturbance at the home and found Conquest was violating both the conditions of his bond, and an order of protection, which was granted. He then posted $2500 more in bail and was released.
