Man Charged With Kidnapping, Assault Of Ex-Girlfriend

CREATED Apr 15, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A violent night sent a jealous ex-boyfriend to jail.

A police affidavit said 31-year-old David Gordon found text messages from another man on his ex's phone. He allegedly hit the victim in the face, and then put a pillow over her face to the point where she almost passed out.

Gordon allegedly dragged her into her own car and drove around town threatening to kill her and hide her body. The affidavit said he threatened to drive the car off a bridge.

The victim was able to text her mother so she could call police.

Gordon then returned to the hotel room where the couple was staying, where officers arrived and arrested him.

Gordon was charged with kidnapping and aggravated assault. His bond was set at $10,000.
