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.
Officers responded to a vehicle with front-end damage and a flat tire parked on 2nd Ave in the middle of downtown just after 3 p.m. Friday. Behind the wheel was 24-year-old Nicholas Willhoite, who told police he had just gone inside to use the restroom and when he came out, someone had crashed into his vehicle. Willhoite reeked of alcohol and was visibly intoxicated. A security guard observed that Willhoite parked the vehicle and got in and out several times before the police arrived, but the damage was already done to the vehicle when it parked it in the roadway. Willhoite eventually admitted to drinking a vodka/Redbull an hour prior to driving. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests and later blew a 0.155% BAC on a breathalyzer.
Nicholas Gregory Willhoite of Ivy Wood Drive in Amelia, OH, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on April 20, charged with driving under the influence (DUI). A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
