A fight between neighbors at a Nashville public housing apartment complex started out as a verbal argument and then escalated into a physical fight Tuesday.
According to police paperwork, 44-year old Darchell Washington-Moore and her daughter were both upset about the noise coming from the apartment above them where Ashley Crowder lives. Crowder is six-months pregnant and was confronted by the two about the problem. After a verbal altercation, Moore left Crowder's apartment only to return a short time later with a cane. Moore beat Crowder with the cane and bit her in the eye.
Crowder was taken to the hospital for her injuries. Moore confirmed the fight to police and was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. Moore's daughter was given a juvenile citation for her role in the fight.
Darchell Washington-Moore is being held on a $10,000 bond.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
