Chandler Frazier, 19, of Mt. Juliet, was arrested and charged with Aggravated Criminal Trespass and Disorderly Conduct.

Chandler said the affidavit, filed in connection with Fraziers arrest, said he allegedly trespassed onto Willow Creek Apartment property multiple times from June 6-10 after being warned to stay off the site.

In addition, the affidavit said, Frazier reportedly has confronted the employee multiple times in a threatening manner while making comments to assault her. Sgt. Chandler said the employee was allegedly threatened by the suspect again on Monday prior to the apartment worker contacting police.

Warrants were obtained, and Frazier was arrested a short time later. He was located by officers at Charlie Daniels Park, a city owned park near the apartment complex.

Meanwhile, an investigation continues into the disturbance which occurred Sunday night at the apartments in which a Mt. Juliet Police officer was assaulted and four people two adults and two juveniles were arrested.

Additional charges could be filed against other suspects, Chandler said.The Sunday incident occurred about 7:50 p.m., when MJPD dispatch received a call from a Willow Creek Apartments resident regarding a group of about 12 people who were reportedly being loud, disorderly and cursing in the parking of the complex.

After Mt. Juliet Police Sgt. Matthew Mang on the scene, he noticed a large group that was reportedly yelling loud obscenities. The officer, Chandler said, asked the group to calm down and be quiet, but a 17-year-old male then became more disorderly, he noted, prompting Mang to place him under arrest.

The 17-year-old, however, tried to resist Mang, Chandler said, and a witness at the scene said she heard the group reportedly talking about assaulting the officer. He added that many bystanders called 911 to report an officer in trouble. The bystanders said the officer was in need of help because he was surrounded by a large group of people.

Mang, Chandler noted, also requested assistance and additional officers responded from MJPD, Wilson County Sheriffs Department, Lebanon Police Department and Tennessee Highway Patrol. More than 15 officers responded to the scene.

Chandler said that as additional officers arrived they, too, were surrounded by large group of people. The officers began to disperse the crowd to try and establish order. He added that at one point, a few residents of the apartments were also asking the crowd to calm down to protect the officers.Once the situation calmed, officers arrested four people.

The two adults arrested were identified as Kenneth Clemmons, 18, of Mt. Juliet. He was charged with Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest; and Kitakiamma Banks, 36, of Mt. Juliet, who was charged with Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest.

The 17-year-old male was arrested and charged with Unruly Child and Assault Against a Law Enforcement Officer. Another 17-year-old male was arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest. Both teens reside in Mt. Juliet.

This type of disorderly behavior is extremely rare for our community, said MJPD Chief James Hambrick. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt by such unfortunate behavior. Im grateful for the quick response from surrounding agencies that assisted us in our effort to ensure our community remained safe.

Mang did not require medical treatment. He is a seven-year veteran of the MJPD and supervises the departments second shift patrol detail and is a member of its Special Response Team.
