51-year-old Deanna Paul was jailed early Saturday morning after a fight with her lover, Zachariah Coker, at the Residence Inn by Marriott Nashville Vanderbilt. The two were out drinking on Broadway in downtown Nashville Friday night when Zachariah decided to return to the hotel while Deanna stayed downtown. Once she returned to the hotel, Zachariah says she began to hit him in the face and bit his finger until she pushed him out of the room and locked the door. Deanna says she only bit his finger because he stuck it in her mouth while they were physically fighting. Officers documented injuries to the victim’s face and finger and took Deanna into custody, charging her with domestic assault.
