19-year-old Noah Denson was charged with domestic assault, reckless endangerment, and three counts of vandalism after punching his girlfriend in the face multiple times and then driving his car into the side of her vehicle causing damage to two other vehicles.
On July 27th, Officer Thomas Parrish was dispatched to Comfort Suites at 904 Murfreesboro Road in response to a report of domestic assault and vandalism. Following his arrival, the officer spoke with Makiya Graham who advised she had been attacked during an argument with her boyfriend, Noel Denson. She stated that they had started arguing while they were still in Trousdale County, TN, but she left and returned to her hotel room. While she was sitting outside on her car, Denson returned and the argument continued. This time the argument turned to violence and Denson began striking her in the face with a closed fist. After the assault, he returned to his car and left the scene for a short period of time. When he returned again he continued his onslaught, punching her in the face multiple times, and slamming her to the ground.
The second assault caused Ms. Graham’s tooth to break and left her face bruised and red. Officer Parrish noted that there were visible bruises and redness on Ms. Graham’s face and that her tooth had been broken in the struggle. Noah Denson then drove his vehicle into the side of her car. The automobile rotated 90 degrees from the impact and sparked a domino effect that damaged three cars in total.
Denson then fled the scene but was picked up in Trousdale County after officers positively identified the vehicle. Officers confirmed the damage to the front of the car was consistent with damage to Ms. Graham’s vehicle. The officer estimated the damages to the vehicles at $10,000 or more for Ms. Graham’s 2015 Hyundai, $1,500 for the second vehicle, $1,000 or less for the third vehicle that was struck.
Noah Denson was arrested and charged with domestic assault, reckless endangerment, and three counts of vandalism. His bond was set at $9,500.
