32-year-old Michael Derenzis got into a car on Broadway that he believed to be his Uber rideshare. The driver notified him he was in the wrong vehicle, but Michael refused to exit. The driver flagged down a Metro Nashville Police Officer who ordered Michael out of the car, and he still refused. He demanded to speak to the Uber driver in the front seat – but there was no one currently in the front seat. Due to his extreme level of intoxication, he was taken into custody. On the way to booking, Michael began to speak to his friend, who was not there in the patrol car with him.
