Alleged Gang Member Accused Of Violating Judge's Order
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man named as a Kurdish Pride Gang in a public nuisance lawsuit has been accused of violating a judge's direct order.
In June, Metro Nashville Government filed a civil lawsuit against the Kurdish Pride Gang and its members asking that they be declared a public nuisance, and a Davidson County Judge Steve Dozier granted a temporary relief order, preventing the group from engaging in criminal conduct.
According to affidavits obtained by NewsChannel 5, 26-year old Omeed Esmail was arrested on a number of charges including Burglary, Theft, and Nuisance Abatement Violation. He was one of the 24 alleged members named in the lawsuit.
In the affidavit, it said Esmail voluntarily confessed to the burglary of a business over the weekend.
The affidavit said that he admitted to busting in the front glass door of the Al Baghdadia Clothing Store on Nolensville Pike with a rock and taking a register, which he pried open with a claw hammer.
In the lawsuit, the members are asked to not meet in what's called a "safety zone" in South Nashville, which includes parking lots by Nolensville Pike, near where the store is located.
