43-year-old Ethan Edwards was booked this week after drunkenly approaching officers that were in the area for an unrelated incident. Police had responded to Demonbreun Street for a vehicle parking issue when Edwards approached them, stating that he had been carjacked. The officers attempted to investigate his claims, but he started arguing with them in the street. He tried to grab an officer by the shoulders, and they quickly realized that he was intoxicated by the odor of alcohol coming from his body. His speech was slurred, and he swayed while standing. He was placed into custody, and while being transported to booking, he told police that he was not intoxicated, but while awaiting processing, he admitted that he was.
Ethan G. Edwards was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 16th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $250.
