29-year-old Karla Sparks and her friend were yelling, “that crackhead robbed us and assaulted me!” as downtown officers noticed them on Broadway in front of Lucky Bastard Saloon late Saturday night in downtown Nashville. Officers determined to gather more information, but both individuals were very uncooperative and refused to give any more information. They began to yell at officers to “Arrest her!” but would not give any further information on what occurred or why. As officers began to speak with the other involved individual, Sparks ran up and smacked her in the face in front of officers. She was taken into custody for the assault of Janna Forsythe, and disorderly conduct.
