27-year-old Nicholas Moore reportedly smashed his girlfriend’s head into the mud during an assault on February 3. Police say the two were in an argument over ‘relationship issues’ that was taken outside into the parking lot of their North Nashville apartment complex. She says he pushed her and threw her to the ground and dragged her into the mud and pushed her head into it. Nicholas’ friend intervened, giving the victim, Jessica Turner, time to retrieve a box cutter for self-defense. She screamed for Moore to leave her alone, but he rushed her in an attempt to take the box cutter and, in doing so, cut his hand before fleeing. As police were at the scene, Moore also called 911 to report the knife wound and stated he was driving himself to Centennial Hospital. Officers positioned themself to await his arrival, but he never showed up. A warrant was issued for his arrest, and he was booked on it this week.
Nicholas K. Moore was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on February 8th, charged with domestic assault with bodily injury. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,000.
