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.
52-year-old Dawn Starr was visiting Nashville from Eagle Rock, Missouri, with her family when late Thursday night police responded to their AirBNB on Phillips Street for a reported domestic assault, where her children reported she had assaulted them. The victims (her children) and multiple other witnesses were “out partying” in Nashville when they all confirm the mother, Dawn Starr, began to use racial slurs in public. The children say they demanded their mother stop speaking in that manner, and an argument ensued.
The victims state the mother attacked them, swinging her hands in an attempt to smack them, and making physical contact on multiple occasions. Three additional witnesses, in addition to the children, observed the events of the evening. Dawn lists her occupation on social media as an “Essential Oils Distributor.”
Dawn Marie Starr, of Farm Road 1170 in Eagle Rock, MO, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on May 27th, charged with domestic assault. She is free on a $1,000 bond.
