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.
Orlando Hughes, the owner of Music City Protection, says he took 18-year-old Roy Davis into custody and detained him at Ezell Harding Christian School for “stealing packages” and even posted his photo on social media before detaining him in his vehicle while he waited for Metro Nashville Police to arrive. The teenager was unarmed when he was put into the vehicle to stay warm, and after two hours, Hughes was preparing to release Davis, as MNPD still had not responded to the scene, and he was no longer able to wait. He took Davis out of the vehicle and realized he was in possession of Hughes’ Glock 43x handgun, which had been stored in the glove compartment. Huges told the actual police officer that Davis “must have taken it when I wasn’t looking.” Hughes is a licensed armed security guard and a state-certified trainer. Davis was charged with theft of a firearm.
Roy M. Davis was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 30th, charged with felony theft of a firearm. He remains jailed in lieu of a $2,000 bond.
