19-year-old Joshua Jackson disagreed with his former employer regarding money after termination. His former employer, Jonathan McKinney, met Joshua at Bank of America and paid him and others in cash, but Josh thought it was not the full amount owed. He and another defendant, Jordon Holts, got into Jonathan’s face, threatening to take his wallet and phone in the bank’s parking lot. Jordon reportedly punched him, and Joshua slapped his sunglasses off of his head.
The bank manager came outside to tell them they were on camera and needed to leave. After leaving the bank, they went to Jonathan’s house and grabbed gas hedge trimmers as well as multiple Dewalt rechargeable batteries and chargers off his porch. His mother confronted Jordon for stealing the items from her porch, and another defendant, Derick Jones, pulled out a handgun and then pointed it at her. Jonathan’s mother told police that she thought Dedrick would shoot her, so she dove back into the residence. He returned to his residence to see the defendants trying to leave, so he kept them from leaving by blocking their vehicle with his.
At this time, Jordon and Joshua started kicking Jonathan’s vehicle and throwing rocks at it, so Jonathan moved his vehicle to let them out. After they left his residence, they took the stolen property to Cash America Pawn on Gallatin Pike, and Jordon sold the times. There is camera footage showing the incident at Bank of America as well as Jordon at Cash America Pawn. Warrants have been issued for the other involved parties.
Joshua Jackson of Highway 8 West, in Cleveland, TN, was booked into Metro Nashville Jail on September 27th, charged with vandalism and assault. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,500.
