27-year-old Joseph Pappas approached an offer in downtown Nashville while he was drunk on 02/18. The officer was standing on the sidewalk when Pappas walked up and almost stumbled into him. The Officer noticed bloodshot eyes and lack of balance and asked Pappas if he had a ride home. Pappas told the officer he lived close by in Germantown and that he was going to walk home. The officer tried to get Pappas to arrange a ride home but was too drunk to operate his phone. The officer observed the defendant attempting to walk home while stumbling side to side and walking into other people and decided to arrest him as he was a danger to himself and others.
Joseph P. Pappas was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on February 18th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $50.
