28-year-old Nathaniel Elias D’amico was found standing in the middle of Broadway in downtown Nashville in the early daylight hours of Saturday morning, looking distraught and intoxicated. As officers stopped to check on his welfare, he approached them and stated he wanted to make a report of an assault. As they collected his ID for the report, they quickly realized he was the same person who had called 911 earlier to report his “teeth were broken,” requesting medical assistance. Nashville Fire Department medics responded to the scene, but when they arrived, Damico refused all treatment or transport. He changed the description of the suspect, who he claims assaulted him multiple times while telling the story to officers. After the report was completed, Damico remained very intoxicated and was unable to arrange a ride home nor confirm he even knew how to get home. Unable to leave him in his current state, he was transported to booking and charged with public intoxication.
Nathaniel Elias D’amico was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on December 3rd, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $100.
