32-year-old Damian Luster was jailed on March 21st for assaulting his wife at their home on Murfreesboro Pike. When officers arrived, they observed Alicia Martin with scratches on her neck and body as well as petechiae in her eyes from being strangled. Martin stated that she had gotten into an argument with Luster because he was no longer helping with their child. When Martin had asked her husband to leave the apartment, he pushed her up against a kitchen counter and placed his forearm across her neck. Martin then kicked Luster in the stomach to defend herself.

Luster denied strangling his wife and advised that she had brandished a kitchen knife, so he pushed her away from him to protect himself. Luster also stated that Martin had spit on him during the argument. Based on Martin’s visible injuries along with her statement, Luster was deemed the primary aggressor and taken into custody.
