Judicial candidate accused of assaulting court officer
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -Judges are supposed to make sure the law is followed to the letter, but now a Metro judicial candidate is in trouble himself. Michael Rowan is accused of assaulting an officer of the court.
Jeremy Frank makes a living as a court process server. He serves civil warrants to people who typically owe money. But when Frank showed up to Rowan’s home in the Green Hills area last month, he claims he was attacked.
Frank accused Rowan, an attorney who is also a candidate for Davidson County general sessions judge, of punching him.
Frank claims he had identified himself as an officer of the court when he arrived to Rowan’s home to serve a warrant, which stems from an $8,600 debt a legal research company said Rowan owes.
But Frank said Rowan told him to leave and soon became physically aggressive.
