29-year-old MMA fighter Donovan Salvato spent 12 hours in the Metro Nashville Jail this week on a domestic violence hold after he bit his roommate’s testicles during an argument. Police documented a 2.5-inch laceration of the victim’s scrotum, multiple bruises, and swelling to his head. Salvato is charged with domestic assault with bodily injury.

COMPLAINT:
2021-0582485
ARREST WARRANT / AFFIDAVIT:
On 11/11/2021 I responded to a domestic-related call for service at 709 Crockett St. Mr. Sosa is the roommate of the
defendant. Mr. Sosa stated there had been an ongoing verbal argument with the defendant over him staying at the address and not being on the lease agreement.

He stated the defendant struck him several times in the face and torso with a closed fist. Mr. Sosa stated he was also bit in the testicles by the defendant. When police arrived on the scene, the defendant had already left. I was able to contact the defendant over the phone. He stated a physical altercation took place with Mr. Sosa. He claimed
strikes may have happened, but only because of the grappling and injuries might have resulted from hitting different items in the house.

Mr. Sosa had a two to two and a half inch laceration to his scrotum, several bruises, a busted lip, and swelling of his
head. Based upon the injuries being consistent with Mr. Sosa’s statements, I found the defendant to be the primary aggressor.
