43-year-old Corisha Motisa Fuqua had a domestic incident with her boyfriend, Craig Cicero Martin, near Sinkers Beverages Liquor Store off Gallatin Pike on the afternoon of March 12th. Paul Wesley Poland, a witness who alerted the authorities, advised that he was in the Sinkers Beverages parking lot when Fuqua and Martin argued in their car. Then, Poland said Martin reached into the vehicle, and Fuqua scratched his hand, leaving a mark. When the officers arrived, they spoke with Martin, and he told them that Fuqua had stayed in the car while he went into the liquor store. When he came out, she was looking through one of his phones. Martin then reached for the phone, which was when Fuqua scratched him. Fuqua told detectives that while Martin was in the store, one of his phones vibrated. Fuqua then checked the phone to discover Martin had been speaking to other women. While Fuqua was taking pictures of Martin’s phone with hers, Martin came out of the store and attempted to grab his phone. Fuqua advised that she must have scratched Martin’s hand with one of her nails when he reached for the phone. Officers observed the marks on Martin’s hand and deemed Fuqua as the primary aggressor. Fuqua was taken into custody for domestic assault.
