Last Friday night, John Bruton was relaxing by himself, masturbating in the cozy confines of his car. He had his pants and underwear pulled down, and an array of porn magazines fanned out on the dashboard.
Unfortunately, Bruton’s car was parked in front of a Kroger at 711 Gallatin Road, right near Eastland Avenue.
You would think that Bruton received the shock of his life when Metro Nashville police officer Jerry Bell walked up to the car and tapped on the driver’s side window. But according to the police report Bell filed, Bruton remained pretty calm.
The carjacker “looked at me and then pulled up his pants and underpants and placed the pornographic magazines in the vehicle’s glove box,” Bell wrote in his report. Bruton exited the car and Bell asked him to turn around and place his hands behind his back for cuffing. “No, I ain’t doing it,” said Bruton, according to Bell’s report.
The officer then forced Bruton to turn around and the two scuffled. “The defendant…grabbed a hold of the front of my uniform… We struggled, which resulted in us hitting the grocery cart bin and then falling to the ground.”
Bruton took off running down Gallatin, though he was apprehended a short time later. Today he will go to court and face charges of indecent exposure, resisting arrest, and assault.
