Metro Nashville Police say 34-year-old tourist Kristen Gaines locked herself inside a bathroom of a downtown residence Sunday while threatening to kill herself. She eventually exited the bathroom, and when her girlfriend, Heather Hobby, asked her what was wrong, she reportedly lunged at her, grabbed her, and tossed her over the couch, at which point she began to hit and scratch the victim. Police documented a partial recording of the incident, along with injuries and a torn shirt on the victim.
Kristen Leggett Gaines of Lakeland Blvd in Flowood, MS, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 14th, charged with domestic assault with bodily injury. She is free on a $1,000 bond.
