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.
29-year-old Jose Gonzalez was observed outside of Mellow Mushroom in downtown Nashville to be highly intoxicated and unable to care for himself. He could barely stand and reeked of alcohol, according to police. He was offered medical treatment and transport but refused all services. Unable to locate his friends to retrieve him, officers took him into custody and charged him with public intoxication. Once at holding, he vomited everywhere yet continued to insist he was ‘fine’ and just wanted the handcuffs off.
Jose Gonzalez was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 1, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $250.
