NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- Metro police arrested Christopher J. Hatcher this morning for aggravated assault and strangulation after he choked and kicked a pregnant woman according to the police affidavit. 

Police responded to 16th Avenue North and Buchanan Street where the woman, who is 5-months-pregnant, says she was approached by Hatcher and entered into a verbal dispute. Things turned physical when Hatcher allegedly choked her to the point of passing out. When she woke, she says he began to punch her in face and threw her to the ground, ultimately kicking her in the stomach. 

Police observed a cut to the woman's lip, broken teeth and scratches on her body upon their arrival. 

Hatcher told police it was he who was attacked by the woman and attempted to defend himself, showing them scratches to his left arm and right hand.
