Metro Nashville Police working the downtown Nashville Entertainment District Initiative (EDI) say 44-year-old Emery Thompson was fighting another man near 5th & Broadway just before midnight Friday night. The fight seemingly ended as officers approached the two involved parties. As the other man was not looking, Thompson suddenly sucker-punched him after the fight was finished by all accepted man-code standards. Officers understood their assignment and took the tourist into custody.
