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.
41-year-old Matthew Jones was taken into custody after officers observed him kick over a sign in front of Redneck Riviera, a bar located on Broadway. Jones was then grabbed by a bouncer and identified. He was unsteady on his feet, reeked of alcohol, and his eyes were bloodshot. Once Jones was detained, he told officers that he did not know where he was staying and didn’t know if he had been with anyone else earlier in the night and could not get a ride from anyone. Officers took him into custody for his own safety as he was highly intoxicated and had nowhere to go.
Matthew Jones was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on February 17th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set is bond at $100.
