After Mt. Juliet & Wilson County authorities declined to even require their beloved citizen to post a bond after committing a brutal assault on his fiance, or for multiple prior DUI and other related offenses, Nashville has stepped in to revoke his bond on one of his cases in Davidson County. On Thursday, both the Davidson County District Attorney and his Nashville probation officer filed separate motions with the court which were granted.
One is a violation of his probation, citing he failed a drug test on October 19th and was subsequently arrested for new charges in Wilson County. The other, a motion from ADA Laney Ann Heard, notes he has 4 pending probation violations in Wilson County, received a citation for texting-while-driving in August, in addition to the new arrests, and asks the court to revoke his bond until a hearing can be held in Nashville. Both orders were signed early yesterday and he was surrendered on the charges to the county jail, where he will remain until his next hearing, which will happen next week.
18-year-old Preston Johnson, of Mt. Juliet, is charged with the harassment of his (now ex) girlfriend’s mother, after allegedly using an app to text from different numbers, telling Ashley Bishop DoCarmo she was a horrible person, a bad mother, and she would not be around to see her daughter get married and have kids of her own. DoCarmo says she was in fear of her life. A judge released Johnson on his own recognizance.
25-year-old William Moneymaker was booked into the Wilson County Jail in August after he was found to be in a vehicle with a female who had an active order of protection against him in Davidson County.

19-year-old Joshua Wilson Pickney was pulled over for speeding in Chevrolet Impala through a school zone. Cpl Sean Ronan, of MJPD, says he smelled weed and noticed a rolling tray with shake in the back seat, which gave him probable cause to search the car, despite the very vocal opposition of Pickney. Inside the car, Ronan located four bags of marijuana, a scale, and a TP9 handgun. Pickney is free on a $16,000 bond.
The manager of Jonathan’s Grille called police on an intoxicated female, identified as 28-year-old Courtney Alexandria Bass, who they wanted to trespass from the property.

They also towed her car, in which they found .5 grams of marijuana, along with a grinder and a pipe. #PettyPolice
