Metro Police say 39-year-old Joshua Thomas Mumaw, from Atlanta, was fighting another man in the lobby of the Noelle Hotel in downtown Nashville Friday night. While attempting to break up the fight, a female member of the hotel staff was also assaulted. By the time police arrived, Mumaw was back in his room, and police explained he had been trespassed from the property and would have to leave. He refused, and while standing in the hallway of the hotel, Mumaw suddenly bent down to a squatting position and then launched his head backward, sticking Officer Krausman in his jaw, causing an injury.
Joshua Thomas Mumaw was booked into the Metro Nashville jail on 02/05/2022, charged with assault on a first responder, assault, and criminal trespass. He is free on pre-trial release to his 299 N Highland Ave NE address in Atlanta, GA.
