34-year-old Amadeus Pryor was jailed this weekend for an assault that occurred in late December. Police say Pryor was with his ex-fiancée, Kristy Ford, at Ladeside Lounge in East Nashville when they argued about him disrespecting her. She says as she was leaving, Pryor followed her outside, grabbed her arm, and walked her toward the parking lot. She reportedly ended up on the ground next to her vehicle with Pryor on top of her. She says he then strangled her until she could not breathe, and took her phone when she released her grip on it. Officers documented injuries on the victim, including redness consistent with being strangled.
