Charles Nash

NASHVILLE (WSMV) - After nearly 3 and a half years, a man was arrested after he began shooting a rifle outside of his apartment after a night of drinking.

On April 1, 2018, Charles Nash, now 28, became upset when his girlfriend was texting with a former boyfriend.

According to Nash's girlfriend, Nash grabbed his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle from their bedroom closet and began waiving it around, never pointing it directly at the woman.

Nash left the apartment, went into the breezeway, loaded the gun and began shooting near the building.

When police arrived, Nash had left the scene and four rifle rounds matching those of an AR-15 were found.

Nash was charged with Reckless Endangerment and booked into Davidson County Jail. is now with you on the go! Get the latest news updates and video, 4WARN weather forecast, weather radar, special investigative reports, sports headlines and much more from News4 Nashville.
