19-year-old Tyshon Bailey was jailed on April 14th for trying to fight officers when they responded to a call for service on Zermatt Avenue. They witnessed Bailey being irate and aggressive in the house. He repeated to the police, “I’m not going,” and tied a purple bandana around his fist. He then approached officers aggressively and got into a fighting stance. The officer used his arms to create distance, and Bailey lunged forward. Another officer tried to grab Bailey, but he resisted, and they tussled on the couch. Bailey was swinging his arms, hitting one officer in the head and kicking the other. Finally, the officers were able to gain control of Bailey and place him in cuffs; he continued to resist while the officers put him in the patrol car.
Tyshon Bailey was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on April 14th, charged with two counts of assault of officer and resisting arrest. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $3,000.
