27-year-old Neal Williams-Weston was jailed on April 14th for allegedly punching a woman in the eye during an argument and hiding from the police. Police responded to University Court and were met at the door by Williams’ sister, who told them that he woke her up by asking her to watch his kids, and he left. Police asked for consent to search the home to be sure Williams wasn’t inside. They received consent and found him hiding in an upstairs closet. Williams told police that he and Dominque Washington were drinking when they got into an argument, and she left. Police found an outstanding felony warrant for Williams on an unrelated incident.
As officers were leaving, Dominique arrived. She told police that she and Wiliams got into an argument over personal matters, and he slapped her, causing her to back up into a corner in her bedroom. She said that he yelled that he would hit her again while walking toward her. She told Williams he would not hit her, and she tried to leave the room when he punched her in her left eye. Police saw Dominique’s eye red with swelling and bruising around it, consistent with her statement.
Neal A. Williams-Weston was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on April 14, charged with aggravated assault/strangulation and domestic assault with bodily injury. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $27,500.
