Katie Quackenbush Wiki – Katie Quackenbush  Bio

Katie Quackenbush has been spotted in a criminal photo shoot after she was arrested in a 2017 Nashville shooting.
A Tennessee woman convicted of shooting a homeless man who wanted her to haul her Porsche on Nashville’s iconic Music Row escaped jail time and was instead sentenced to less than a year’s probation.

According to The Tennessean, mother of four Katie Quackenbush has sentenced to 11 months and 29 days probation on Thursday for a conviction for reckless endangerment stemming from the 2017 shooting of Gerald Melton.

Quackenbush, who was living in Nashville at the time of the incident but has since moved to Texas, will be allowed to serve his sentence at his new residence.


Katie Quackenbush is 32 years old.

“It was the worst experience of my life, but I’m grateful I lived it because it absorbed me so dramatically,” Quackenbush said in his conviction. “Sometimes the hard lessons are the best lessons.”

According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, on August 26, 2017, Melton, then 54, was awakened by loud music and exhaust fumes from Quackenbush’s Porsche SUV while sleeping on a sidewalk on Music Row.

Melton and Quackenbush got into a heated argument during which the woman allegedly asked the man if he “wanted to die tonight”.

Melton said in court that he drove away when Quackenbush got out of his car and fired two shots into his stomach.

Quackenbush then got back in his Porsche and drove to a Taco Bell with a passenger before heading home. Neither he nor his friend first reported the shooting to the police.

Quackenbush was arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

At his trial in April, a jury found Quackenbush guilty of less reckless endangerment—a misdemeanor—after he testified that he had fired the gun in self-defense to intimidate Melton.

Quackenbush’s father, a lawyer in Texas, had previously claimed that Melton threatened to kill his daughter if she didn’t turn down her radio.

My daughter said to him, ‘I have a gun. ‘Keep the profanity away from me,’ Jesse Quackenbush told Fox 17. He thought he had pointed far enough to frighten her away, and he kept coming and fired another shot.”

At the sentencing last Thursday, prosecutors questioned Quackenbush’s claim that he was afraid of Melton and said he heard an eyewitness say the woman was not afraid of the man and did not take his words seriously.

Assistant District Attorney Amy Hunter also brought up Quackenbush’s disturbing history of making threats against others. In one case, the woman admitted that she threatened to hit a baby with a brick.

In another incident, Quackenbush spilled water on a woman in a restaurant.

When given the opportunity to speak during the trial, Quackenbush apologized to Melton for his actions—but also tried to present himself as a victim, claiming he was mocked, received death threats, and had trouble finding work.

Millions of people were making fun of me online, he complained. “I was convicted by society before trial.”
