A fourth person has been charged in the beating of a man in a parking lot of The Mall at Green Hills.
Brittney Bannister, 19, was arrested by police early Wednesday at her Synder Avenue residence in west Nashville. She is charged with especially aggravated robbery in the March 3 attack on 62-year-old Robert DeMoss Jr., who remains in critical care at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
The three others charged in the incident are convicted felon Bobby Tice Jr., 21, Catherine Mills and Johnathon Harris, both 18.
According to a witness' account, Tice allegedly beat DeMoss repeatedly with a baseball bat in the Dillard's parking while Bannister, Mills and Harris waited in a car, police said.
All four were taken into custody last Thursday. After further investigation, detectives decided to charge Bannister. She is being held in lieu of a $50,000 bond.
