26-year-old Texan Nathan Justus crashed a scooter he was riding on 10th Ave South Wednesday night and was being treated by medics when Metro Nashville Police responded to the scene. Justus stated he was leaving a sushi restaurant where he consumed “one beer.” He then remembered that before the restaurant, he was on Broadway and consumed two shots of whiskey and two more beers. During the crash, he fell to the ground, hitting his head, arm, stomach, and knee, and while on the ground, he became light-headed and passed out. Despite all of that, Justus refused all medical transport and further treatment. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests, and was transported to booking, where he later blew a 0.089% BAC on a breathalyzer.
Nathan Ray Justus of Luckenbach Lane in Austin, TX, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 19th, charged with driving under the influence. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
