News

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A woman was arrested after police said she pulled a gun at a bus stop in the Bellshire area.

According to an arrest warrant, on Nov. 4, 2021, Ashley Beasley, 33, drove to a bus stop at Westchester Drive and Bellshire Drive and told police she attempted to talk to a parent whose child rode the bus. However, News 2 spoke with a witness who said she heard Beasley say to a group of children, “I’m tired of you messing with my daughter,” without any parents around.

Police said Beasley then got into a fight with a 16-year-old girl, who was reportedly looking out for her younger sister. A witness said the teen dominated the fight, and Beasley fell into her car, then grabbed a gun from inside and hit the teen over the head with it.

The gun reportedly fell to the ground, and when a 17-year-old boy went to move it, Beasley picked it up, pointed it at the teens and another woman who went to help the kids. The boy and the woman ran. Beasley then reportedly hit the teen girl on the head with the gun again, causing the firearm to be discharged.

Police said Beasley later admitted to pulling the handgun, striking the teen, and the subsequent discharging of the firearm. She also stated she pulled out the gun in order to make everyone back away from her.

Officers learned Beasley had been convicted of attempted forgery in 2008. She’s being held on a $110,000 bond.
