66-year-old Paul James Bonner, CRNA at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, was involved in a domestic altercation with Adele Wright at Harpeth Parkway West on December 17th. The conflict started when Bonner spilled water on the floor, and Wright handed him a rag to clean it. Bonner became very agitated at Wright for that, so she told him to “get his emotions in check.” This put him over the edge. He wrapped his hand around her neck, but shortly after, he put his hands up and stepped back. Wright told officers that he didn’t restrict her breathing, but she was terrified of Bonner after this. She conveyed to them that he always had a bad temper. Bonner was taken into custody and charged with domestic assault on December 18th.
