20-year-old Camron Ellis was jailed Sunday morning after police responded to Woodale Lane and spoke with Aaron Mitchell, who advised that he and Ellis had been together for a year. He said Ellis had been drinking and wanted to go out to a club, but Mitchell didn’t want to go out; he wanted to go to bed. Ellis kept talking and wouldn’t leave him alone, so he ignored him. When Ellis realized he was being ignored, he became angry and started packing up his belongings to leave. In the process of packing, Ellis broke Mitchell’s ceramic toothbrush holder in the bathroom. He then walked into the bedroom yelling, grabbed the water tank from a dehumidifier, and hit it against the headboard, stating to Mitchell, “You don’t think I’ll hit you with this?”
That’s when Mitchell called 911, and Ellis went upstairs, ripped the TV off the wall mount, and stepped on it. Mitchell explained that the TV belonged to him, and he had it for 2-3 years. The police observed the broken toothbrush holder, droplets of water from the de-humidifier, and the damaged TV and photographed all of it as evidence. There was also damage to the ceiling and walls from Ellis ripping out the mount. When officers tried to speak with Ellis, he wouldn’t cooperate and stated he just wanted to leave. He also refused to identify himself. Ellis was determined to be the primary aggressor and taken into custody.
Camron Arquon Ellis of Woodale Ln in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 10th, charged with domestic assault with bodily injury and vandalism. He is free on a $2,000 bond.
