22-year-old Zaron Phil Smith was booked this week on an outstanding warrant from 2019, charging him with assault. Police say security video shows Smith entering an all-female residence hall at Tennessee State University and waiting in the lobby for Taylor Doughty to come downstairs. Once she was in the lobby, Smith engaged in a verbal argument and then punched the victim in her face and pulled her hair. Smith was issued a citation at the time of the incident, and never appeared for his court date.
Zaron Phil Smith was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 20th, charged with failure to be booked on the assault citation. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,000.
