Clifton Man Arrested on Multiple Charges After Assault on Wife


   Tyler Jonathan Blue, age 28, of Clifton was arrested on Friday, April 17th on charges of aggravated assault, aggravated child abuse/neglect, false imprisonment, trespassing, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. The report filed by Investigator Steve Wilson of the Clifton Police Department stated that over a period of time throughout the day on April 17th, Blue beat his wife, causing serious bodily injury, and prevented her from leaving the residence. Blue’s wife was eventually able to flee to a neighbor’s house, who happened to be an officer with the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Trooper Josh Eaves. Blue allegedly followed his wife to Trooper Eaves’ home, and the officer allegedly observed Blue beating and choking the victim. Trooper Eaves pulled Blue off the victim, at which point Blue fled back to his own residence. Blue was found inside the residence, along with the victim’s 14-month-old child, who was allegedly lying alone on a bed. The bed, walls, and floor in the bedroom were all allegedly covered in a large amount of blood, and the child was bloody as well from being present during the assault on the mother. Officers also located a handgun in the bedroom and two pistols, a small amount of marijuana, and alcohol in the living room of the home. Blue was arrested and booked into the Wayne County Jail on $280,000.00 bond.
