Nashville music producer indicted on kidnapping, assault charges


A grand jury has indicted a Nashville music producer on multiple charges following a pair of arrests in a matter of months regarding allegations he physically and sexually assaulted the same woman several times.

A sealed indictment showed Baeho “Bobby” Shin was indicted Monday on charges including aggravated kidnapping, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, domestic assault, theft of property and coercion of a witness.

News 2 has reached out to the District Attorney’s Office for additional details on the indictment.

Shin was booked April 8 into the Metro jail on charges of aggravated assault and false imprisonment.

According to an arrest affidavit, Metro police were called to his home on Whites Creek Pike in Joelton after someone reported the victim had sent word that she was being beaten by Shin.

Officers arrived at Shin’s home Sunday night and said they observed Shin “attempting to force the victim into a vehicle” in the garage.

When Shin saw the officers, he shut the garage door and took the victim back inside where the officers saw him pull her by her arms through the kitchen and up the stairs, the arrest affidavit stated.

Police could see broken glass on the kitchen floor and what appeared to be blood on the wall and air vent.

Officers knocked on the door multiple times but Shin did not answer, so they made entry through the back door of the home and located Shin in the living room with his hands up, investigators said.

He was taken into custody.

Police said they found the victim hidden inside a window seat bench in an upstairs studio.

She “had numerous bruises on her body and face, a knot on the back of her head and swelling around her right eye,” the police report stated.

The paperwork went on to say the victim told officers that Shin had assaulted her over several days and that he had “taken her head and put it in the toilet and tub (with water in it) multiple times causing a knot to the back of her head.”

An order of protection had already been issued by the victim against Shin, police revealed.

Shin was already accused of holding the same woman hostage at his Joelton home for an estimated six days beginning on Christmas Eve 2018.

The victim told officers the abuse began when Shin got angry at her for smoking an e-cigarette.

She claimed Shin threw her to the ground, punched and kicked her several times, beat her with a vacuum and tried to strangle her with the cord.

Shin is also accused of splashing scalding hot water on the woman’s open cuts.

While the victim was held against her will, she said Shin forced her to perform tasks and would drag her around the home.

She told officers she escaped the home and called for help on December 30.

A judge eventually revoked Shin’s bond following his arrest last month and a new bond of $454,000 was set.

Shin’s website states that he owns The Library Studios, a music production site, and has worked with a number of artists including Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton, Kacey Musgraves and Michael W. Smith.
