22-year-old Parker Hickman was charged with domestic assault and interference with emergency calls after getting into his girlfriend’s “personal space” and taking her phone away.
On February 16th, Officer Jason Thomas met with Parker Hickman en route to a domestic disturbance call on Willow Creek Drive in Mount Juliet. Parker admitted he and his girlfriend Tiffany Pregel had a verbal argument earlier in the day, but denied that an assault had occurred.
The officer then spoke with Tiffany, who stated she tried to call the non-emergency line four times before finally reaching dispatch. She advised officers that during the argument, Parker went into her “personal space” and caused her to be afraid for her own safety. She pushed him away and he then took her phone when she mentioned calling the police.
Parker Hickman was arrested and charged with Domestic Assault and Interference with Emergency Calls. His bond was set at $2,000.
