27-year-old Tationia Harris was being dragged into a vehicle near 5th Ave South in downtown Nashville on May 27, causing nearby officers to take notice and respond to the car immediately. Her boyfriend, who was the driver of the vehicle, explained to police she was trying to start fights with random people on the street, and he was trying to get her safely home, despite her intoxicated state. Officers interviewed nearby citizens who reported that Harris randomly attacked them as they walked by. She was yelling, “What are you looking at?” to anyone who passed by before attempting to take them to the ground. She continued this in the presence of police. She told police she didn’t like the way people were looking at her so she was beating them up. It was immediately obvious why her boyfriend dragged her into the vehicle, and officers took her into custody. During her arrest, she punched an officer in the face and then went limp, demanding they carry her to the vehicle.
