Hell’s Kitchen winner, Kimberly-Ann Ryan, is back in the public eye after allegedly being assaulted Monday morning by long-time boyfriend Jonathan Stoye. The Metro Nashville Police responded to a domestic disturbance call at the home of Stoye in Salemtown. The police report reads that at approximately 2 a.m. on Monday morning, Stoye came home after a night of drinking. He was intoxicated being aggressive toward Ryan.
Ryan had been visiting Stoye from Michigan. Ryan began packing her things to leave due to Stoye’s aggression. Stoye became very angry and began grabbing Ryan preventing her from leaving. Ryan suffered a small bruise on her upper right arm from the attack. Ryan claimed that Stoye had “slammed” her up against a wall just outside Stoye’s bedroom.
Stoye told police that Ryan was angry that he was on his phone. He denied ever assaulting Ryan.
Metro Nashville Police determined that Stoye was the aggressor in the dispute. Stoye was arrested for Domestic Assault. He has since been released on a $2,000 bond and is ordered to appear in court next week.
