22-year-old Nikitah Skyy posted a video of her hitting a woman in the head with a metal broomstick at a party on Franklin Pike on social media on August 14th, leading her to be arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police were approached by the victim’s, Tyra Melton, friends at the party on August 11th when they arrived to a call of a fight involving a weapon. They said Tyra had been struck in the head, and police observed that she had severe bleeding from a cut on her head and seemed in extreme pain. At the time of this report, they said that Nikitah approached Tyra from behind and hit her, so they had no idea who hit her but could describe her. Tyra said that she ran away after being struck, and there was a small scuffle between her and Nikitah, but it was broken up by her friends. Four days later, they called the police again to report that Nikitah posted the video. Tyra stated that after she was treated on her own accord, the assault caused her to receive four stitches in her head.
Nikitah Skyy was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 13th, charged with aggravated assault. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $10,000.
