21-year-old Welsey Hulsey was jailed early Tuesday morning when he assaulted his girlfriend on Millwood Drive. Abigail Wood advised that she told Hulsey she was done with him, and he had to leave. This upset Hulsey, so he came up behind her, wrapped his left arm completely around her neck, and strangled her until she passed out. She woke up to find Hulsey pointing a knife at her and stating that he was not going to leave. Officers observed strained blood vessels in Abigail’s neck and noted her raspy voice. She advised that she had difficulty speaking and heard ringing in her ears. Hulsey had already left the scene before police arrival, but he was found at the Taco Bell on Murfreesboro Pike, where he stated that he did not touch Abigail. Hulsey was then placed into custody and transported to booking.
