38-year-old Chef Christopher Polley was jailed Thursday on multiple felony and misdemeanor charges in Nashville. Police say he was caught on camera kicking through his ex-boyfriend’s door on N 2nd Street on Christmas Day. He does not live at the location and had no permission to be in the residence of his former lover, Philippe Boehm. Chef Polley, who until recently was the chef at Burger + Grain in the Nations, reportedly stole six bottles of cologne, valued at $500 each, and ten vinyl records, valued at approximately $200 each. Polley was clearly identified from a home security video, which was reviewed by police. In addition to kicking through the victim’s bedroom door, the back door has also been forced open, with a footprint on the door. Warrants were issued for Polley’s arrest, and he was taken into custody in the days following the incident.
