43-year-old Paul Bailey was awoken, he told police, by his husband and became upset when he thought his husband broke a family portrait when they arrived at his residence on Leo Ct. He admitted to placing his hands around his husband’s throat for approximately five seconds but did not apply pressure. He also told police that he was remorseful for his actions. Police spoke to his husband, Kyle Bailey, at Turley Dr. earlier, who said that Paul got angry with him when he asked if Paul was going to get a job. At that time, Kyle said, Paul grabbed him by the neck in a headlock and constricted his airway for several seconds. Police noted redness on Kyle’s neck. Also, while at Turley Dr., police spoke to Paul’s mother, who said that she heard the commotion and then entered the room where the two were. She said that she saw Paul place Kyle in a headlock and hit him. Paul was placed into custody for aggravated assault.
Paul Allen Baily was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 17th, charged with aggravated assault with strangulation. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $5,000.
