25-year-old Morgan Batson’s ex-boyfriend, Stephen Thomas, told police that Morgan showed up at Lakeside Lounge when she recognized his vehicle outside on Monday night. He said she threw a bottle at him, but it missed, shattering against the wall and covering him with the contents. He said Morgan then picked up the glass from the shattered bottle, cutting her hand and flinging the blood at Thomas. Police observed blood on the front of Thomas’ shirt, consistent with his story. The bartender told police she saw the incident and described it similarly to Thomas’ account. Thomas suffered no injuries, and Morgan promptly left in her vehicle after the incident, and a warrant was issued for her arrest.
Morgan L. Batson was booked into the Metro Nashville jail on September 6th, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $2,000.
