Domestic Violence Division detectives this week swore out another arrest warrant against jailed Nashville music producer Baeho Bobby Shin, this one charging him with contempt of court for violating the conditions of his bail imposed in January by Criminal Court Judge Mark Fishburn. Fishburn had ordered Shin to have no contact with the 39-year-old woman who reported that Shin physically and sexually assaulted her and held her captive over a period of several days in late December. Shin was arrested again late Sunday night for assaulting the same woman.
North Precinct officers late Sunday night responded to Shin’s 7594 Whites Creek Pike home after a caller from the state of Maine reported that the victim had sent word that she was being beaten. When officers arrived at 10:30 p.m., they saw Shin trying to force the victim into a car parked in the garage. He then dragged the resisting woman up the garage stairs back into the home. From the outside, the officers saw broken glass on the kitchen floor and what appeared to blood on the kitchen wall. Shin refused to answer officers’ knocks on the door, prompting them to force entry. Shin surrendered while in a downstairs living room. Officers found the victim secreted inside a window seat bench upstairs. Her head, face and right eye were swollen and bruised. She also had bruising on her back and legs. She told police that Shin had assaulted her over the course of several days.
Shin was charged early today with false imprisonment and two counts of aggravated assault. His bond on those charges is set at $175,000. His bond on the aggravated assault and rape charges from the December case was set at $227,000.
The District Attorney’s Office is asking that Shin’s bail in the December case be revoked and that bail set on today’s charges be increased.
