A male suspect sitting on a bench at Fifth Avenue North and Church Street downtown scared nearby pedestrians when he began throwing his arms up in the air and screaming “white power” as people walked by, according to police. The 54-year-old man then moved to another bench about a block away, sat next to a woman waiting for the bus and continued ranting and raving about Nazis. When the woman walked away the perp began screaming about the “white women in this country,” then he approached a man and asked for some money to buy a hot dog. When officers arrived on the scene the suspect reportedly began screaming at the top of his lungs, “I am a German police officer.” Nashville police booked him for disorderly conduct.
Too much bourbon?
Several women getting their hair done at a Belle Meade salon were appalled when a man stormed into the business and began yelling profanities at customers. The suspect, 41, then ran to a nearby apartment building and began pounding on doors. A frightened resident called police, who responded to find the perp literally “bouncing off of walls.” The man had trouble walking and smelled of alcohol, police say, and had absolutely no reason to be in the area because “he lives in Kentucky.”
Dude, just take a green one and chill
Police were called to the Cadillac Ranch on Lower Broadway after receiving a report that several patrons were “smoking weed upstairs.” Bouncers at the bar busted the group of tokers, which included a 25-year-old found in possession of a silver vial containing a smorgasborg of pills. The pill-popper claimed he had a prescription for the drugs—which included one round white pill, four long light green pills and two long pink pills—but, not surprisingly, he was unable to produce it. Once he was arrested, police say the suspect “slipped his cuffs from behind his back to the front in an effort to gain freedom.” After trying this a second time, the suspect was placed in hobble restraints and carted off to jail for public intoxication, possession without a prescription and resisting arrest.
A woman went ballistic after her boyfriend took their 2-month-old baby to a neighbor’s apartment. She apparently began yelling that the child was “going to get an ear infection” and then began repeatedly punching the baby’s daddy in the face, police say. When a witness tried to break up the brawl, the 18-year-old suspect began punching him as well. Just as the fight finally settled down, the woman “picked up a shoe and threw it at [the victim] hitting him in the chest.” Responding officers arrested the woman for domestic assault.
