Twenty-three-year-old Justin Jones, also known as Justin Bautista-Jones, a student at Vanderbilt Divinity School, has been arrested for assaulting Tennessee Speaker of the House Glen Casada (R-Franklin). He was also charged with disorderly conduct. Jones kept trying to access the House of Representatives chambers. He will likely be in jail for quite a spell since he is out on bond already for disrupting a rally in Nashville for Marsha Blackburn, who stomped the crap out of former governor Phil Bredesen in 2018 for the open Senate seat. I guess this guy can’t win for losing.
“The group, specifically Justin Jones, attempted to push his way passed uniformed State Troopers and enter the elevator. When he was denied entry, he began yelling at Speaker Casada, calling him a racist,” according to the statement.
“Mr. Jones was then witnessed throwing a Frothy Monkey cup, with an unknown liquid believed to be coffee, at Speaker Casada, also hitting State Representative Debra Moody in the process,” the statement added, noting that:
Mr. Jones was placed into custody at the time for Disorderly Conduct and two counts of simple assault. Jeneisha Harris was also arrested by Trooper Tara Lee for Disorderly Conduct for attempting to push passed troopers, yelling and threatening Trp. Lee. Both subjects were then escorted to another room in the State Capitol for processing and transported to a mobile booking facility by Davidson County’s Sheriff’s Office, where they were brought before a magistrate and warrants were issued
Jones was charged with disorderly conduct and two counts of simple assault. Harris was charged with disorderly conduct.
