24-year-old Alexandra Peterson had an altercation with her girlfriend, Alexis Jean Daniel, on Broadway near Representative John Lewis Way in the early morning of February 10th. Peterson was intoxicated and crying when she flagged officers down. Peterson told them she could not get to her hotel and had met someone downtown who left her there. She said she knew a friend named “Lexi,” who stayed in Nashville, but when officers tried to call “Lexi,” there was no answer. So, officers agreed to give Peterson a ride to her hotel in the Hermitage area. While they drove westbound on Broadway, Peterson told officers she saw “Lexi,” so they stopped and approached a male and a female, later identified as Alexis Jean Daniel and an unknown male. Officers asked the pair if they were looking for Peterson, and they explained that she was probably looking for them. Officers let Peterson out of the patrol car, and she began crying hysterically as Daniel advised that she thought Peterson left with her mom. Based on Peterson and Daniels’ behavior towards each other, officers separated both parties to speak with them. Peterson said that she and Daniel argued, so she tried to walk away, but Daniel grabbed her shoulders. Peterson admitted to punching Daniel in the face because of this. Daniel said they had no physical altercation but confirmed the verbal argument. Officers noticed redness to the left side of Daniel’s face, consistent with being punched. Daniel explained that Peterson had hit her a couple of days prior in a separate altercation. Peterson was taken into custody for domestic assault.
Alexandra M. Peterson of Old Nashville Road in Bowling Green, KY, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on February 10th, charged with domestic assault. She is free on a $1,500 bond.
