NASHVILLE: A Tennessee man is accused of stabbing a man, with whom, according to police documents, he argued wearing a mask and later swinging two metal baseball batsmen. An affidavit from the Metro Nashville police said 53-year-old Jerry Cowan started arguing with another man outside an apartment complex early Sunday because Cowan did not wear a mask.
Cowan allegedly took out a pocket knife and a “long blade with a wooden handle” according to the affidavit and struck the other man in his arm and near his chin.
The victims attended a nearby residence and called police, records show. Investigators wrote that Cowan responded by entering her home and officers heard “a metal object hitting the back of the door twice,” Tensien reported, citing the affidavit.
Officers locked the door and found Cowan holding a metal baseball bat in each hand. He swung the bats towards the officers and fled, the documents said.
The officers repeatedly told Cowan to release the bats and later used a stun gun on him several times and took him into custody.
Cowan was charged with resisting arrest and assaulted with a deadly weapon, arrest records show. He was jailed on Sunday afternoon on US $ 76,000 bond. It was not immediately clear whether Cowan had a lawyer who could comment for him.
