On November 4th, Clarksville Police Officer Ronald Brown reported to a residence, 316 Hamstead Court, because of a possible domestic altercation. Officer Brown stated that Kristen Krouser was sitting on the front porch of the residence and was visibly upset. Krouser stated that she had been assaulted by family members and they were “all going to jail.” As other officers arrived on the scene, Officer Brown spoke to Violet Smith, Krouser’s grandmother.

The officer’s report stated that there were two witnesses to the altercation. Cornelia Jones, Krouder’s mother, stated that her daughter was “acting crazy,” but she did not see the assault. The other witness, John Smith, stated that he saw Violet Smith be struck in the head by Krouser.
