20-year-old Javon Lewis Edwards was involved in a domestic disturbance with his sister, Eryonae Miller, at McGavock High School during a basketball game on December 8th. Miller flagged officers down and stated she and Edwards were in the car arguing about her not wanting to leave the game. Then, she opened the car door to get out, and he sped up, causing her to fall out. Edwards grabbed her shirt close to her neck and strangled her. Miller was able to get away from him and run into the school, where a female staff member checked her for injuries, observing the red mark on the left side of her neck and the red mark above her right breast, consistent with where she said he placed his hands. Officers spoke with Edwards, who stated he “jacked” her up but did not hit her. Edwards was deemed the primary aggressor and was taken into custody for domestic assault.
Javon Lewis Edwards of Adamwood Drive in Nashville, Tn, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on December 8th, charged with domestic assault. He is free on a $2,500 bond.
