Metro Nashville Police were responding to a fight at Jason Aldean’s bar in downtown Nashville. As officers were attempting to separate involved parties, 42-year-old John Elliot Purciful of Las Vegas began to interrupt and interfere with officers taking one of the parties into custody. He was pushing his way into the officer’s workspace and refused guided attempts at moving out of the way. Purciful eventually pushed an officer and resisted when officers attempted to detain him.
John Elliot Purciful of Square Knot Ave in Las Vegas, NV, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 26th, charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,100.
