Several business owners say 45-year-old Jason Terry slashed the tires of at least eight vehicles parked at a shopping center on Charlotte Pike. In a video obtained by Scoop: Nashville, the business owners are seen chasing him down with baseball bats and assaulting him in a large group. Joshua Schangel says he had just pulled into the parking lot and was still in his vehicle when Terry slashed his tire. Casee Adams, who works at a chiropractic business in the strip mall was coming out for lunch and also observed him slashing tires. Both witnesses positively identified him in a photo lineup. While being chased by a group of owners carrying baseball bats, Terry cut one of them, Cyong Nguyen, with the same knife he had used to slash the tires.
Jason L. Terry was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 6th, charged with felony vandalism and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A commissioner set his bond at $50,000.
