NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
A man was arrested Monday on multiple charges after police responded to a domestic assault and found marijuana in his south Nashville home.
Police were called to the 2500 block of Willowbranch Drive on September 14 after the victim reported to police that she and her husband got into a fight and he assaulted her.
According to the affidavit, the woman's husband, Antonio Davis, 32, kicked and punched her as she lay on the ground and later put a revolver to her head and stated he was going to kill her.
The victim was able to escape with the couple's infant child and call police from a neighbor's home.
By the time responding officers arrived, Davis was gone.
However, they found seven marijuana plants in a closet underneath the stairs in the home with a lamp being used a grow light.
Davis' wife denied knowledge of the marijuana, according to an affidavit, and agreed to a further search of the home.
Police found two packages of cigarillos, which they say are commonly used to smoke marijuana, as well as a marijuana roach in an ashtray, digital scale, a marijuana grinder and a package of clear sandwich bags.
Davis was arrested Monday on charges of failure to be booked, aggravated assault, drug paraphernalia used to manufacture or deliver and manufacturing a controlled substance.
