30-year-old Deon Jamal Henderson was involved in a domestic dispute with the mother of his two kids, Austina Harper, at their shared residence on Old Hickory Boulevard on December 9th. Harper advised officers that Henderson had been abusing her for years and that when he came home from work, he began to argue with her before ripping the Ring doorbell camera off the door. Then, she stated she told him that she did not want to argue in front of their children, so they went to their bedroom, where he grabbed her by the wrists and threw her onto the bed. Harper attempted to record the incident, but he grabbed her phone, telling her, “You know I’m bigger than you; I could just pick you up and throw you.” Henderson pushed her up against the wall when she stood up, which made her slam her hands into the wall, breaking her fingernails and causing them to bleed.  Then, Harper ran to their neighbor’s house, who allowed her to use their phone to call the police, and Henderson fled the scene. He was taken into custody for domestic assault on December 11th.
