Man charged with assault after incident at north Jackson apartment
JACKSON, Tenn. — A man is facing a domestic violence charge after Jackson police responded Friday to a north Jackson duplex.
Darius Blakemore, 30, is charged with simple domestic assault stemming from an incident Thursday night at the same duplex.
Court documents say a woman saw Blakemore head-butt his girlfriend several times. The woman told investigators that Blakemore’s girlfriend already had a black eye and bruises from previous assaults, according to court documents.
Jackson police responded to the same home Friday afternoon on Old Humboldt Road for what police believe was a domestic-related hostage situation. No one has been charged in connection with that incident.
Blakemore was released from custody over the weekend.
