Couple Arrested After Brutal Attack on Nashville Producer


Justice served for Nashville producer Dave Brainard and his friend Deborah Deloach. The two were with some friends when they were brutally beaten on Demonbruen in Nashville on September 27th while trying to cross the street in a surprise and needless attack. After sifting through tips, police arrested Dustin and Nichole Hargrove. The couple left a wedding reception at the Country Music Hall of Fame when they nearly struck Brainard and his friends with the car before exiting their vehicle and attacking the group.


Unfortunately, the beating that caused Brainard to have surgery and be hospitalized only earned the couple misdemeanor assault charges.
