25-year-old Tyler Towne was booked on an outstanding warrant from 2019 when he assaulted his ex-girlfriend after an argument turned hostile. On November 4th, 2019, Candace Richardson reported that a few days prior, on Halloween night, she had returned home to find Mr. Towne sitting in the living room drinking alcohol. They argued over their living situation as they were separated but living in the same home. Mr. Towne then got in her face and began yelling and screaming while backing Ms. Richardson into a corner. She pushed him to get him away, he pushed her back, and they started fighting on the floor. Mr. Towne then began strangling Ms. Richardson. Once he let her go, she ran and locked herself in a room. The following day, she packed her things and moved out. She advised that she didn’t call the police that night because she was too afraid, but once she saw the bruises she acquired from the assault, she felt she needed to report it. Officers observed bruises on Ms. Richardson’s arms, and a warrant was issued for Mr. Towne.
Tyler Edson Towne of South Bear Creek Road in Dickson, TN, was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on November 3rd, charged with aggravated assault. He is free on a $2,500 bond.
