The prosecution has filed a motion to add to the bond conditions of Chris Bostick, the well-known owner of Nashville area Carnival Kia automobile dealerships.
Bostick was charged last week with assaulting his wife, Dessie Bostick, and possessing an AR-15 rifle as well as a handgun, which according to police is a crime because Bostick has a previous felony conviction in Brevard County, Fla.
In a filing before the Williamson County General Sessions Court, Assistant District Attorney Jessica Borne has requested that Bostick be barred from having any contact with his wife, vacate or stay away from any location where his wife is likely to be (home for example), and barred from possessing or consuming alcohol or controlled substances.
A hearing on these proposed changes to Bostick's bond is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 21.
On Sunday, Nov. 4, Brentwood police were dispatched to the Bostick home on Princeton Hills Drive in Williamson County.
According to court documents, a verbal altercation occurred at the couple’s residence and Chris Bostick asked his wife to leave. When leaving, Chris Bostick allegedly slammed the door on her, causing it to strike the right side of her face and leave a visible knot. When she reached for her phone to call police, he then knocked the phone from her hand, according to the court documents.
She then drove to the Brentwood High School parking lot where she met police, who then returned with her to the residence. According to police, Chris Bostick had fled the scene on foot, but Dessie Bostick escorted the officers to the bedroom where the AR-15 and handgun were found. The police report goes on to state that multiple safes containing more firearms were at the residence, but Dessie Bostick didn’t know the combinations.
Chris Bostick surrendered to Brentwood police the next morning. Prominent Nashville criminal defense attorney and former U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee Ed Yarbrough is representing Bostick in the matter.
