57-year-old Steven Reid had an altercation with an intimate partner, Breyona Bunkley, at the Atrium Way La Quinta Inn & Suites on the morning of May 24th. Reid spoke with responding officers, telling them that he met Bunkley in downtown Nashville on Broadway, where she solicited prostitution before they headed to his hotel room. He claimed while they were still in his car, he had lost the $200 he was going to pay Bunkley, who “fondled him” as he drove. Then, Reid decided to go to the gas station to retrieve another $200 from the ATM. Once they returned to the hotel, he said Bunkley “fondled him” again and started giving him oral sex. Reid said the act lasted “less than five seconds,” and she was ready to leave. Reid wanted his money returned due to a “lack of services.” Then, Bunkley told officers Reid began taking off his clothes, wearing nothing but his underwear. Bunkley thought he was going to have sex with her, but she did not want to, so she called the front desk and told them, “A sexual assault was about to happen.” Then, a fight ensued, which continued into the hallway as Reid tried to retrieve his money from Bunkley’s purse, but the cash was not there.  Afterward, Reid attempted to grab her phone as she waited for the elevator. The incident was captured on camera. Reid gave officers Bunkley’s phone and purse. Additionally, Bunkley stated she and Reid went to his hotel room to “drink” and “hang out,” denying any fondling or oral sex had happened. Officers noticed she had a swollen lip and a broken purse strap. Reid was taken into custody for assault.
