43-year-old Ronald Flanders Jr was jailed for public intoxication at a Mapco, where employees called the police after his rowdy behavior. The employee told police that Flanders threw money at her and fell over, damaging store items. When officers spoke with Flanders, he was slurring his words and being unsteady on his feet. Officers attempted to take him to the Radisson Hotel he claimed to be staying at, but the hotel staff said he did not have a room there. Flanders then told officers that his room was at the Courtyard at Marriot. Officers called the hotel to confirm before making another wasted trip. The staff at Courtyard stated that Flanders has been at that location, claiming he has a room but does not. Officers placed Flanders into custody due to his level of intoxication and inability to care for his safety.
Ronald Flanders Jr was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 4th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $100.
