34-year-old Benjamin Davis was involved in a domestic disturbance with his wife, Pasche Jade Simmons, at their house on November 23rd. Simmons told officers that Davis was grabbing the steering wheel and almost caused them to drive off the road, so she stopped at Glenrose Avenue for her safety while searching for the nearest police station. She stated that they were arguing, and it escalated when he slapped her in the face two times because he wanted to go to the ATM and get some cigarettes. She decided to take him for cigarettes to help him calm down. Officers observed redness and minor swelling on her cheek as they were shown a cell phone video of Davis displaying erratic behavior and being aggressive while they were in the car. Then, Simmons advised officers that Davis was on probation in Colorado for previous domestic assaults against her and that she was fearful for her safety and did not know what to do. Davis told officers that they had an altercation at their residence and that he was hit during it, showing officers the redness on his forehead. Due to video evidence of Davis’ erratic behavior, Davis was deemed the primary aggressor and was taken into custody for domestic assault.
Benjamin C. Davis was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 23rd, charged with domestic assault with bodily injury. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $3,500.
