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.
18-year-old Daniel Alarcon was initially sent to Skyline Hospital for treatment when officers encountered him due to his young age and extreme level of intoxication. Upon arrival at the hospital, he became extremely belligerent and refused to obey any directives from medical staff. Officers attempted to de-escalate the situation so he wouldn’t have to go to jail, but he refused all attempts and continued to disrupt the usual business of the hospital. He was eventually placed into custody after he stated he would “rather go to jail than stay in the hospital.” Once they attempted to place him in cuffs, he stated he wanted to “just go home” instead. Alarcon admitted to drinking an entire bottle of liquor.
Daniel Alarcon was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 4th, charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and underage drinking. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
