East Point police previously charged Nash in August 2021 with two counts of aggravated assault/family violence, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and reckless conduct, jail records show.

The victim’s family said Nash, who was released from jail in March, was wearing an ankle monitor when the day care shooting occurred.

He also spent around three months behind bars in connection to an October 2020 arrest in Atlanta for aggravated assault/family violence, terroristic threats, criminal trespass, and damage to property.
