Amid a string of bestiality allegations raised across the Midstate, Metro Police filed charges against a Brentwood woman Wednesday claiming she engaged in oral sex with her dog.
Home videos confiscated by Brentwood Police officers executing an unrelated search warrant showed Devan L. Johnson, 28, of Wicklow Road, enticing her dog to perform oral sex on her, according to an affidavit filed Wednesday in Davidson County Criminal Court.
Brentwood Police turned the evidence over to Nashville officials after they determined — through lease records and backgrounds from the video — that Johnson lived on Charlotte Pike when the video allegedly was filmed.
The video was filmed between July 2008 and January 2009, according to the filing.
Johnson faces one count of sexual activity with an animal. She is being prosecuted under a new bestiality law that went on the books in 2007. The law makes it a Class E felony to engage in sexual activity with an animal or to take or possess videos of such activities.
Johnson, who has no previous offenses in Davidson County, is free on $2,500 bond.
People in Maury and Humphreys counties and well as a couple in Davidson County are all facing or have faced bestiality-related charges in recent months.
Williamson County officials would offer no comment on the original investigation that led to the discovery of the tapes.
Attempts to contact Johnson for this story were unsuccessful.
