Management of the TownPlace Suites in midtown contacted police Saturday to report that 21-year-old Ayan Awad refused to leave the location. She insisted she was a guest at the hotel, however she had no reservation and reason to be on the property. She then went outside and got into a vehicle that did not belong to her, and threw a drink in the face of the valet who asked her to exit. Officers arrived and again explained she was not a guest here and needed to leave, and she continued to refuse to leave the property. After she was placed into custody she turned her head and looked directly at officer Kaitlyn Powell and spit in her face. When asked he she thought that was funny, she replied “it was not funny, it was hilarious.”
Ayan Awad, of Simmons Ave in Nashville, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on June 18th, charged with criminal trespass and assault of an officer / offensive contact. She is free on a $3,500 bond.
