Well-known auto dealer Bostick waives right to appear in court
Carnival Kia owner Jerry Christopher Bostick, 53, of Princeton Hills Drive in Brentwood, waived his right to appear in county court Wednesday morning in Franklin.
Bostick was arrested last week on domestic assault and felon in possession of a weapon charges. He turned himself in at Brentwood Police Headquarters last Monday after an incident on Nov. 4.
Bostick's lawyer Edward Yarbrough did not comment on the case, but said Bostick's preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 19.
According to a police affidavit, Bostick slammed a door in his wife's face causing a "visible knot" on her face on the evening of Sunday, Nov. 4, during an argument at their home. There was also a red mark on her arm, according to reports.
Bostick was booked Nov. 5 and transported to Williamson County Jail where he was released after posting a $5,000 bond.
Records indicate Bostick has a felony arrest in 1989 in Florida for carrying a concealed weapon.
Bostick, known to appear with his family in television advertisements for the car dealership, owns and operates Carnival Kia auto dealerships in Franklin and near Hickory Hollow and Rivergate Malls.
