Murfreesboro Detectives are investigating an alleged assault that sent one victim to Vanderbilt Medical Center early Thursday morning. A 27-year old Smyrna man visiting Main Street Live on West Main in Murfreesboro told police officers that the DJ in the club gave him a tour of the facility and during that said tour, he witnessed several people smoking what looked to be marijuana in a back room. The DJ called the room in question the “Amp” room.
Police documented that the victim told them that he was accosted by an unknown subject while exiting the Amp room. The responding officer wrote in an incident report, “(The victim) stated that he was grabbed up by the bouncer who told him that he needed to leave and began forcing him toward the side door by the stage.” The report went on to state, “Once outside the door the bouncer struck (the victim) in the side of the head, causing him to fall down outside the steps.” Officer M. Thomas wrote, “While on the ground (the victim) was repeatedly kicked and punched until he lost consciousness.”
The victim was transported by a friend to StoneCrest Medical Center in Smryna and then transported by ambulance to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, due to the seriousness of his injuries. The victims’ friend originally thought he could take the victim home to be treated for his injuries and avoid medical care - until he saw blood coming from the victims’ ear. That was when his friend took the detour to the Smyrna hospital.
The case is now under investigation. The incident offense was described by police as a “Felony Aggravated Assault.”
