    Sure she’s a good kid. Just likes a lil assault. Another one of those”don’t take responsibility it aint her fault” posters.

    I can’t tell you that none of them are trailer trash and Ramsey is my girlfriend. She also was at the wrong place at the time. And I don’t like y’all’s comments on here about it. I know he whole story and half of this isn’t even true or right. They all were super drunk and made bad choices but they all accept responsibility for what they have done. And Ramsey is a good girl.

    I know the girl Hayley. We used to hang out all thetime! She’s been going through a lot with drugs and all this crazy stuff. I think some jail time would do her good!

  • The Truth will set you free

    You say Hayley was at the wrong place at the wrong time, how can you be at the wrong place when the assault happened at Hayley house. This is also not her first offense, since she has pending charges against her for beating up her girlfriend.
    Also, has been kicked out of school for fighting, among other things. And underage drinking, oh that is a good kid for sure.

    There is def more to this story. but it doesn’t change the fact that they beat a man up and held him in a room for 2 days, beating and cutting him with a butcher knife. they held him in a room and broke his phone bc they didn’t want anyone to see what they did to him. they also tried to fix one of his wounds with crazy glue. they look like a bunch of punks. i hope they all go away and never come back. davidson county is much better off without any of them around.

    I wonder is Ramsey in the men’s or women’s holding cell? Ahaha! But no (serious face) I’m sure they’re all great people.
