NASHVILLE – A local man is facing three felony charges as a result of a report made to police Thursday.

According to a statement issued by Assistant Chief Amy Marion, city officers arrested 36 year old Lawrence Swift Jr. after a man with injuries to his face accused Swift of punching him in the face.
“Officers Ty Basiliere, Greg Parker, and Justin Garner went to the residence at 718 South Ansley Street,” Marion said in the statement. “Mr. Swift tried to hide underneath a vehicle [but] was arrested without incident.”
