This story is brought to you by Scoop: Nashville as part of the #bspotter / #VisitMusicCity series which features tourist and downtown-related arrests in Music City.
33-year-old Chayn Lawrence & 34-year-old Michelle Dorminy were charged with domestic assault on Tuesday night after a fight at their apartment. Lawrence admitted to standing over top of Dorminy, his girlfriend of three years, and ripping her phone from her hands as she was lying on the floor. This caused her to be in fear for her life. Lawrence had a face full of scratch marks which he said came from Dorminy hitting him several times. She denied causing any injuries. Dorminy only admitted to scratching and biting Mr. Lawrence to the neighbor, who informed the police of what he was told. Because the details of the incident did not line up, there were no direct witnesses and both parties claimed they were assaulted; they were both booked into custody and charged.
Chayn Lawrence was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 7th, charged with domestic assault with offensive/provocative conduct. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,000.
Michelle Kristine Dorminy was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 7th, charged with domestic assault with bodily injury. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $1,500.
