Clarksville Police say 36-year-old Trista Gatson was in an argument with her daughter, Taliah, when she took out a pair of pink brass knuckles, placed them on her hand, and began to swing at her daughter. The attempts never made contact with the victim, but the daughter says she was in immediate fear, and pepper-strayed her mother in self-defense. When officers arrived, Trista stated she didn’t even own any brass knuckles, however, a quick search located them in her bag.
Trista Michelle Gatson, of Chapel St in Clarksville, was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on June 8th, charged with aggravated assault (domestic). She is free on a $2,500 bond.
