It’s only a drillAfter several unsuccessful attempts to evict a tenant from an apartment in Donelson, the landlord of the property showed up to confront the man about his refusal to move. The landlord later told police that when he entered the unit, the tenant walked around the corner with a cordless drill in hand and said,“Now we’re going to do this my way.”The landlord promptly exited the residence and called police, who arrested the 45-year-old power tool handler for disorderly conduct.
A family affairUpon returning from church on a Sunday afternoon, a woman began yelling at her husband about an ex-girlfriend he dated more than 25 years ago. Apparently the ex had recently married the man’s brother, which he explained to his wife was the only reason he was still in contact with her. When the husband tried to leave the house to avoid an argument, his wife shut the door on his hand. Police say the suspect then assaulted her husband a second time while trying to retrieve his cell phone from his pocket to see if he had been calling the ex-girlfriend-turned-sister-in-law. The victim managed to hold onto his phone and call police, who charged the 55-year-old suspect with domestic assault.
A real shit-stormTwo female roommates got into an argument because one of the women was a slob and reportedly left her baby’s dirty diapers strewn about the house. When the victim told the 19-year-old mother she either would have to clean up or move out, police say the suspect responded by threatening to kill her roommate. The suspect then chased the victim outside, where she began kicking and swinging at the woman, before finally pulling out a handful of her hair. A neighbor eventually intervened to break up the fight, and police responded to the scene and arrested the perp for assault.
