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.
33-year-old Kirsten Almquist was observed “staggering” on the sidewalk near 4th & Broadway on Friday in downtown Nashville. As an officer approached, she fell and took a seated position alongside the window at Whiskey Row. Officers made contact and described her as “in a state of rage” and reeking of alcohol. When asked if she had anyone who could care for her or retrieve her, she replied, “Yes, in Arizona!” She became verbally abusive and screamed obscenities at passers-by. She was then taken into custody and charged with public intoxication. Almquist was also arrested on the same charge in Virginia earlier in the week before visiting Nashville.
Kirsten Irene Almquist was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 11th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $50.
