34-year-old Jeremiah Campbell bucked up to nurses and Centennial Hospital security in the late hours of August 6th. Police arrived and said Jeremiah was calm but spoke to an off-duty officer, Officer Evans, who was working security there that night. He said that Jeremiah was upset that he was not released yet, attempted to leave, bucked up to nurses, and bucked up to him. He said that he balled up his fists but never threw a punch, and when Officer Evans attempted to detain him, Jeremiah fell to the floor himself. Jeremiah was arrested and transported to booking, where he told police that he did not want to be treated, touched, or interrogated by the hospital staff. He asked the officer how he could be arrested based solely on hearsay since the officer did not watch him be disorderly. After repeatedly saying that his arrest was based on hearsay, he said that the officer was only arresting him for money and that he needed to let him go. He accused him of not caring for Jeremiah’s well-being or the well-being of the patients.
Jeremiah W. Campbell of Driftwood in Greenville, OH, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 6th, charged with disorderly conduct. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
