22-year-old Justin Rivers was jailed Friday morning after trying to break the glass of Ryman’s Auditorium’s guard shack on John Lewis Way. Police responded after a call from security officers at the location. When police arrived, they saw Rivers shirtless, yelling loudly and punching the glass of the guard shack. Officers immediately detained him and could smell alcohol coming from his breath. Officers asked Rivers if he had taken anything after seeing pinpoint pupils; he replied, “Jack and Daniels.” While officers were speaking to Rivers, he made remarks about bombings, shootings, and other remarks that didn’t make sense. He was taken into custody as he was a danger to himself and the offense would likely continue. While awaiting intake, he continued to make absurd remarks about traffic stops, the keys to his apartment, bombings, and drugs. He continuously went from quiet and respectful to loud and angry.
