A concerned citizen called Metro Nashville Police after seeing 51-year-old William Poeggel fighting with his co-worker, Brian Benter, in a parking lot near Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville Tuesday afternoon. The two were reportedly in a physical fight and one pushed the other into one of their white Whaley Foodservices branded work vans during the struggle. They wouldn’t tell police what the fight was about, but both were reportedly extremely intoxicated and could barely stand. Poeggel attempted to light a cigarette and fell forward and lost his balance in front of officers. He was taken into custody and charged with public intoxication.
William J Poeggel was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 12th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $100.
