Franklin, TN Man Arrested and Charged for Solicitation, Battery

MT. VERNON – A Franklin, TN man was arrested Saturday and charged after allegedly locking a female employee of the Double Tree Inn on Potomac Boulevard in his hotel room with him.

Mt. Vernon police responded to a complaint from the hotel’s front desk clerk that 44-year-old Thomas Harmon made a sexual proposition to one of the housekeeping staff, locking one of their members in the room with him. The woman was ultimately able to get out.

Officers took Harmon into custody, who was charged in Jefferson County Court with solicitation of a sexual act, battery and disorderly conduct. His bail was set at $3,500 and was ordered to not go on the premises of the Double Tree Inn.

He’s scheduled for a Dec. 3 arraignment on the charges.
