The two people charged in the Sept. 27 assault of producer Dave Brainard are citing self-defense, according to The Tennessean.

Nashville attorney Mark Scruggs said that his clients Dustin and Nichole Hargrove of Columbia, Tennessee, were protecting themselves against Brainard, and that Brainard “got hurt accidentally in the process.”

Brainard was hospitalized following the attack and had his jaw wired shut during his recovery. Dustin Hargrove was charged with felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor assault. Nichole Hargrove was charged with misdemeanor assault.
