28-year-old Wesley Thompson was staying at a Nashville AirBNB Thursday night when an automobile accident occurred outside as a car crashed into a utility pole. The debris from the utility pole’s destruction landed on several nearby vehicles in a parking lot where Thompson was parked. Officers were at the scene when Thompson emerged from the house, irate that his truck was struck by the debris. He was heavily intoxicated, staggering when he walked, and yelling and screaming racial slurs, including the “n-word,” as loud as he could, according to responding officers. He was advised to go back inside as there was a live power line nearby. He continued to yell and scream the “n-word” and came outside while intoxicated and caused quite a disturbance. He was placed into custody and charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
Wesley Thompson of E. Hannah Road in Summertown, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on December 9th, charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $200.
