This story is brought to you by Scoop: Nashville as part of the #bspotter / #VisitMusicCity series which features tourist and downtown-related arrests in Music City.
Metro Nashville Police responded to the Tin Roof bar on Broadway to find 44-year-old Elizabeth Marie Barnard extremely intoxicated and having difficulty standing upright while reeking of alcohol. A Nashville Fire medic cart transported her to the staging area at 1st & Broadway, where she was being transitioned to an NFD ambulance for transport. She became combative with first responders, cursing at them and sticking her fingers in the face of medics. She then refused all treatment and medical care and was taken into custody for public intoxication.
NOTE: Davidson County Sheriff’s Department staff at the mobile booking unit decided not to take her mugshot in her extreme state of intoxication, instead relying on a two-decade-old mugshot from 2003 related to a driver’s license issue— a courtesy not afforded to other drunken downtown partygoers — to suffice as the current mugshot. A representative of Sheriff Daron Hall’s Office says “it was a misunderstanding” that they neglected to take a current mugshot during an arrest.
Elizabeth Marie Barnard was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 10th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $250.
