Arrest made in home
Clarksville police responded to a domestic battery call about 10 a.m. Tuesday at a home in the 100 block of Carter Avenue in Clarksville.
After arriving at the scene, a woman said her relative, Bradley Weathers, 20, who lives in the home, had “assaulted her inside the house, advising that he pushed her in the doorway causing her to hit her head on the door frame of her bedroom door,” police reported.
She also reported that she had pushed him away from her because she was fearful of what he might do to her.
Weathers told police the woman had been yelling at him and that it was her who attacked him.
After being arrested, while en route to jail, police reported Weathers “kept trying to get his handcuffs around the front of him to get his hands into his pockets.”

Phenergan is a commonly prescribed for motion sickness and as a sleep aid.
Weathers was preliminarily charged with D felony legend drug act violation, domestic battery and A misdemeanor resisting law enforcement.
