49-year-old John Nicklas told police, “In the heat of the moment, I probably did lunge at her, but I never actually hit her” about a domestic assault on September 13th. Police spoke to his ex-girlfriend, Sharon Bimbo, at the Hampton Inn & Suites Nashville Airport on Donelson Pike, who said she and John argued while in a vehicle parked at the hotel. She told police that John spit in her face and attempted to hit her while she was in the back. Sharon showed police a video of John turning around in the vehicle and yelling at her. Also, the video showed John lunge at her and raise his hand as if to attempt to strike her. She said that she felt in danger for her safety at that time. He admitted to arguing with her in the vehicle. Police determined John was the primary aggressor and arrested him for domestic assault.
John Paul Nicklas of Talc Street, AZ, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 13th, charged with domestic assault. He is free on a 1,000 bond.
