18-year-old Justyn Tacey was pushed to the edge after his mother took his phone, and he was later jailed for domestic assault. On July 30th, MNPD officers arrived at Windypine Dr. and spoke to Rebekah Tacey, Justyn’s mother, who said that she and Justyn began arguing after she took his phone. She told police that she took his phone after he took his brother’s Gatorade. Justyn came into Rebekah’s room, irate, took his phone, got into her face, cussed at her, and pushed her. She said that she then pushed him back; the brother stated that he saw the whole incident and that she did so in self-defense. When police spoke to Justyn, he said that Rebekah pulled him onto her after he received his phone back, and he pushed her just to get away. After hearing all the accounts, police decided that Justyn was the primary aggressor, so he was placed into custody.
Justyn L. Tacey was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 31st, charged with domestic assault with offensive/provocative conduct. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,000.
