26-year-old Richard Shaver reportedly pulled his brother-in-law, Jeremy Rider, from the back seat of a vehicle into the front seat, and when the vehicle stopped, he pulled him out onto the road and stomped on him. They had been out drinking, along with Richard’s girlfriend and Jeremy’s wife, and an argument erupted after Shaver said something about the family. The victim suffered severe swelling to his left eye and face, a black eye, and scrapes along both legs.
Richard W. Shaver of Nightshade Drive in Murfreesboro, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 5, charged with aggravated assault with serious bodily injury. He is free on a $3,500 bond.
