24-year-old Ryan Stone accused his girlfriend, Ashanti Moore, of “playing with him” when she had gone out to get contacts and her phone died. When she returned, he confronted her in their bedroom and pushed her to the floor. She then told him he had to leave the house and unplugged the HDMI and ethernet cords from his PlayStation 5, which “sent him into a fit of rage” during which he pushed her into a wall, grabbed the back of her head, pressed her face onto the floor, and struck her in the back of the head. She believes she lost consciousness during the assault.
The victim was eventually able to grab his hair and scratch him in order to break free. Stone then became “extremely apologetic”, however she still demanded he needed to leave the home. He then walked into their child’s room and stated he was taking the baby with him. He also became furious when she demanded he leave her phone when he left. They struggled once again before he eventually left the location. During the assault, he also purposefully stepped on her laptop and destroyed it.
Ryan Stone was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on February 22nd, charged with domestic assault with bodily injury and vandalism. He is free on a $5,000 bond to his 807 Star Blvd address in Madison.
