18-year-old Robbie Cook was jailed on April 29th after threatening to kill two men that were left most of the estate that he felt should have been left to him in his great aunt’s will. Jeffrey Pentecost and James Derrick Simpson were given permission to live on the property by the estate owner in her will and probate before she passed away. They looked after Cook, the estate owner’s great-nephew, until he recently turned 18. Cook came over that night and was aggravated that he was not left any of the property in his great aunt’s will. Mr. Simpson played an audio recording from his cell phone where officers could hear Cook repeatedly threatening him and Mr. Pentecost, stating, “You must want to die tonight,” “I’m going to kill you both, you pussy ass motherfuckers”, and “you won’t know what’s going to hit you.” While Cook was making those threats, he was waving a knife and lunging at them. When Mr. Simpson initially called the police, Cook had just left the property, went to his truck, and pulled out a baseball bat. He walked up to the RV that Mr. Simpson and Mr. Pentecost live in and smashed the front windshield. The estimated cost to replace the windshield was $3,000.
Robbie L. Cook was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on May 3rd, charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, vandalism, and two counts of aggravated assault with a weapon from a vehicle. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $75,000.
