78-year-old Connie Stamps assaulted her recovering husband in Summit Hospital on April 4th. Earlier that day, a nurse heard yelling coming from Stephen’s room, where she saw Connie slap him while calling him “a stupid son of a bitch.” The nurse asked Stephen if Connie slapped him, and he nodded, “Yes.” Also, he said aloud, “She has been known to do that.” An officer was assigned to Stephen Stamps, Connie’s husband, for an adult protective service referral after the incident. The officer found that Stephen had undergone surgery for a brain bleed on March 23rd, a day after he was found unresponsive.
Connie M. Stamps was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 29th, charged with vulnerable adult abuse. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $5,000.
