Nashville Developer Waives Preliminary Hearing In Assault Case

CREATED Jun 26, 2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The man at the center of a domestic violence controversy appeared in court, where he waived his preliminary hearing. The case has been bound over to a grand jury.

Nashville developer David Chase has been accused of attacking his girlfriend, getting arrested, and then attacking the woman again after being let out of jail before his 12-hour "cooling off period" was over.

He waived his right to the preliminary hearing Thursday morning. Afterwards Chase's attorney, Richard McGee, said there are two sides to every story and the truth about his client would come out in court.

"We're quite confident that when we do that we're going to get the exact type of verdict that we've been saying all along and that's going to be a not guilty verdict,” said attorney Richard McGee.

A temporary order of protection ordering Chase to stay away from the woman was also extended 90 days.

He remained on house arrest, and must wear an alcohol monitoring device on one ankle, and a GPS device on the other -- partly due to a previous DUI case.

The 37-year-old was scheduled to appear back in court in late September.
