50-year-old John Stone and his son were at Kid Rock’s Bar in downtown Nashville Saturday when they caused a commotion, demanding that another patron be removed from the bar. As they yelled and screamed, Metro Nashville Officers took notice of them and began to take the son into custody for his disruptive behavior. John Stone saw his son being detained. He approached the officers and placed his hands on an officer’s chest and grabbed his vest in an attempt to pull him away. Officers took John Stone to the ground, where he continued to resist, but eventually took him into custody. A search revealed a handgun in his possession, and he was extremely intoxicated.
