Lethal Bar Fight in Tennessee

Michael Mosley is accused of fatally stabbing two men outside the Dogwood Bar in Nashville, Tennessee.

Investigators allege that Mosley made an unwanted advancement toward a female friend of the victims, and an argument between the groups got physical. Mosley’s attorney says video evidence will prove his client acted in self-defense.

However, at the time of the killings, Mosley was free on a $5,000 bond after being arrested for aggravated assault—a brutal attack of a 37-year-old woman in a Walmart; the woman is allegedly connected to an ongoing murder investigation involving the death of Mosley’s sibling.

While few have seen the video evidence, this case begs the question: was it really self-defense?

“You do have a right to defend yourself,” explained Jeffrey Wolf, Denver defense lawyer and Court TV correspondent. “That doesn’t make this any less of a tragedy, but you do have a right to defend yourself, depending on the circumstances. And none of us know those circumstances until the video comes out.”
