Memphis, TN – Sometimes, as in this case, I post an article simply because of one line in the original article that I can’t help but find hilarious. Unfortunately, this article is regarding a fairly violent domestic assault out of Memphis.
Police say 30-year-old Angelus Gwynn and his girlfriend, 34-year-old Lakisha Cash, got into an argument over a car that led to Gwynn wrapping a tow chain around Cash’s neck and choking her until she passed out.
One neighbor who lives two doors down heard what happened when she got home,”They said she was literally on the ground. We had kids all out here and they thought she was dead. She was laying in the middle of the ground. They thought she was dead.”
Another neighbor who witnessed the events told police that, and here is the line I mentioned earlier, while Cash lay unconscious on the ground, Gwynn bounced a basketball off her head while he drank a beer.
Trust me when I say I do not find domestic abuse funny. But dammit, out of context, the visual that description puts in my head just cracks me up and I am positive that fact is helping secure my spot in Hell. But let’s get back to the story as Gwynn wasn’t finished with Cash.
When Cash came to, Gwynn reportedly wrapped a garden hose around her neck and used it to drag Cash to the front porch.
When police arrived, they found both the tow chain and garden hose and arrested Gwynn for aggravated assault. Not surprisingly, he is no stranger to police with past charges of possession of marijuana, theft of property and aggravated robbery.
There is no word on Cash’s condition, but neighbors say the ambulance that arrived at the home left with no one inside it. WREG found that Cash has filed at least three orders of protection in the past, but did not know if any of them were against Gwynn.Angelus Gwynn, Basketball, Crime, domestic abuse, garden hose, Lakisha Cash, Tennessee, tow chain
