25-year-old Melody Hennigan had an altercation with her boyfriend, Justin Hafner, at their shared apartment in West Nashville on January 24th. Officers were advised that they argued about images that she found on Hafner’s phone, and when she tried to throw it, he grabbed her arms to prevent her. He let her go, and then she threw it, not damaging it, then she grasped her hands around his neck and squeezed lightly. Hennigan stated that she did this out of retaliation because he grabbed her arms. Hafner told them he did not wish to prosecute, but they deemed her the primary aggressor. Hennigan was taken into custody for domestic assault and transported to booking.
