55-year-old Georganne Parr was jailed late Monday night after protesting at the State Capitol building. THP Troopers say the House of Representatives had an active session when the crowd became disorderly by shouting and screaming. Parr was asked to leave the chamber and refused to do so. Trooper Pollard grabbed her arm to escort her from the chamber, and she pulled away and reportedly pushed him. Trooper Campbell stepped in to help when she pulled away, rolled over, and ignored all commands. During a struggle, she reportedly struck Trooper Campbell in the leg. She was non-compliant with being detained and had to be carried down two flights of stairs.
Georganne Parr was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on April 3, charged with disruption of a meeting, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and two counts of assault on a first responder. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $8,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave her pre-trial release from their facility.
