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.
46-year-old Erika Conover was found by a citizen near 1 Symphony Place in downtown Nashville just after 6 p.m. Friday, extremely intoxicated and unable to care for herself. An officer was flagged down and attempted to assist Conover as she stated she was trying to get to her AirBNB. However, the app on her phone showed she had not yet booked it, and her card on file was declined when she attempted to do so. Conover kept getting drunkenly distracted and telling the female officer how much she loved her during the interaction and begged her not to be mad at her. The officer took Conover to the Moxy Hotel, where she attempted to get a room, but she did not have her credit card available. Unable to locate any of her friends and her having nowhere safe to stay, Conover was transported to booking and charged with public intoxication.
Erika Conover was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on June 30, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $100.
