This story is brought to you by Scoop: Nashville as part of the #bspotter / #VisitMusicCity series which features tourist and downtown-related arrests in Music City.
22-year-old Isaiah Cooke reportedly struck the mother of his child, Halee Anne Persinger, in the back of her head after she unplugged his Xbox as a motivation to help her pack things so they could leave. After he assaulted her in the head, she then grabbed his genitals in what she says was “self-defense”, and in reaction, he reportedly elbowed her in the nose. Cooke says she only yanked the controller from him and that he simply pulled her to the ground by her hair.
Isaiah Cooke was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on April 18th, charged with domestic assault with bodily injury. He is free on a $1,500 bond to his 508 Hidden Hill Drive address in Hermitage.
