Crime Tracker

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The cafeteria manager at Croft Middle School in South Nashville has been placed on administrative leave amid allegations she pulled a pistol during a road rage incident earlier this week.

According to an arrest warrant, a woman was driving two students to the school on Elysian Fields Road Wednesday morning, when she was cut off by another driver, identified as Jasmine London.

The warrant states the two women then “exchanged words.” During that exchange, the victim reported that London pulled out a pistol, as well as her gun permit.

At one point, police said the victim realized London was also headed to Croft Middle School. The school’s website lists London as the Cafeteria Manager.

When London was questioned by police, they said she admitted to having an argument with the victim, but claimed she pulled out her phone and not a weapon. Officers searched London’s vehicle and did not find a pistol, but explained there were “inconsistencies” in her story.

London, 30, was arrested and booked into the Metro jail Wednesday afternoon on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She was released on a $2,000 bond.

In a statement provided to News 2 Thursday morning, a Metro Schools spokesperson said “the assault allegations described in the complaint by the family member of an MNPS student are unacceptable.”

The spokesperson added that London had been placed on administrative leave pending further investigation.
