30-year-old Andre Satterlund was jailed on February 14th after reports of him assaulting a woman on 6th Avenue and Mulberry Street. Two separate calls were placed stating that a male and female were outside of a vehicle, physically fighting under a nearby bridge. Both complainants noted that the female was bleeding from her face. The callers gave officers the license plate number of a tan Lincoln sedan. The officers didn’t find the vehicle under the bridge, but it was spotted near Carrol Street and 5th Avenue South. When the vehicle driver noticed the officers, they abruptly drove away. Officers searched the area and located the vehicle in a parking lot at 9th Avenue South and Gleaves Street. There was blood on the hood and passenger door, along with strands of the woman’s hair. Officers then identified Satterlund as the driver and asked him to step out of the vehicle. Santia Zamora was in the passenger’s seat, with extreme swelling to her jaw and eyes. Her nose was bleeding, and her arms were scraped. Officers observed blood everywhere on the passenger’s side of the vehicle and immediately called for an ambulance. Both parties stated that they were in a relationship, and Zamora had gotten into a fight with strangers at Hustler Strip Club. Satterlund initially stated that his girlfriend had gotten into a fight with another woman inside the club. Later, he changed his story to his girlfriend getting into a fight with three women outside the club. Satterlund admitted that he and Zamora had been “having problems” all day. Officers then went to Hustler Strip Club, where two witnesses stated they saw Satterlund kicking and kneeing his girlfriend in the face outside of the club. Officers located an area where there were several items thrown from inside Satterlund’s vehicle and blood on the ground. Officers noticed Satterlund had blood on his pants, and his knuckles were swollen. Zamora was transported to Vanderbilt Hospital for her injuries. While in the ambulance, Zamora admitted that Satterlund punched her, kicked her, and threw her into the side of the car. The severity of Zamora’s injuries is unknown, pending a CT scan. During the search of the vehicle, officers located an open alcoholic beverage within reach of the driver’s side. Officers also learned that Satterlund did not have a valid driver’s license. Zamora did not wish to prosecute. Satterlund was taken into custody and charged with domestic assault, open container violation, and driving without a license on February 14th.
