48-year-old Joshua Hargrove was jailed Saturday after reportedly assaulting his boyfriend at a bar. Hargrove told police that he “was inside the bathroom of a gay bar and can’t control the actions of other men inside a bathroom.” He stated that when his boyfriend, Cooper Lowe, came into the bathroom, they began arguing, eventually leading to him grabbing and pushing Lowe. He explained that he can’t control his actions when confronted that way.
Mr. Lowe told police that he caught his boyfriend in the bathroom cheating on him, and when he confronted Hargrove to ask about what he just saw, he “Lost it.” He stated that Hargrove grabbed him by his shoulders, shoved him into a wall, and held him there until security broke them up and kicked them out of the bar. Based on the statements made by both parties, Hargrove was determined to be the primary aggressor and was transported to booking.
Joshua Hargrove of McFerrin Ave in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on October 7th, charged with domestic assault. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,000.
