According to the complaints obtained by Scoop Nashville, Bennett told police on July 3 that Soares had been to multiple bars that night, and became extremely intoxicated.
On their way back to his car, the complaint says, he and Soares got into a verbal argument, and by the time they reached his vehicle, she began strangling him, scratching his neck and striking him in the chest.
He then drove them back to the house they shared in Nashville, where she allegedly began assaulting him once again before fleeing the scene.
Police officers in the affidavit said they observed redness and multiple cuts to his neck, as well as redness around his bottom lip, and he was bleeding from his injuries.
Then on Saturday, another complaint says, officers were flagged down by Bennett who said Soares and him were out drinking when they began to argue.
He said they left the bar separately and Bennett returned home first.
Soares then began sending him numerous text messages before she also arrived at home. Once there, Bennett told the officers, Soares went to the second floor bathroom and began throwing things.
He said he tried to approach her, at which point, Soares grabbed his neck.
Bennett said he was able to push her away, causing an earring in her nose to bleed.
He then left the home, he said, and flagged down the officers, who discovered him with visible injuries to his throat.
The officers also found Soares with injuries to her face, but wrote that it was unclear where they came from.
She claimed Bennett had punched her multiple times during the altercation, but there were no visible markings on Bennett’s hand to suggest he had punched anyone.

Her Instagram is now listed as private
The allegations against Soares come one day before she posted in her blog about her move to Nashville.
‘My name is Brianna Soares,’ she introduces herself on the site. ‘I’m 27 years old and I currently live in Nashville with my two cats, dog and boyfriend.
‘I moved to Nashville last year in June (Yup -right in the middle of a pandemic) from Sacramento, California.
‘I turned my Instagram into a “blogging” and influencer platform in April 2019 because I wanted to feel more connected to the community, and it was also an outlet for me because I had a stressful job working with the “most dangerous and unstable youth” in California.
She added that she moved down to Nashville after visiting it with a friend, and broke up with her boyfriend when he said he did not want to leave California.
‘Connecting with others on the Nashville Housing Facebook page really helped me because I found my roommates and where I wanted to live,’ Soares wrote.
‘I also met my current boyfriend on there a couple months before I moved LOL, but that’s a story for another time.’
Since the allegations against her have come out, Soares has made her Instagram private.
