24-year-old Virginia tourist William Jessie was jailed in Nashville early Saturday morning after refusing to pay his nearly $8K tab at the new troubled Barstool Sports bar in downtown Nashville. Staff stated Jessie reserved a table with his credit card and charged to the table throughout the night. When the card was run at the end of the night, it declined as ‘frozen.’ Jessie told police he disagreed with the charges and purposely froze the card so it could not be charged. Barstool Sports prosecuted for the $7,946.05 theft of services.
William E. Jessie of Grandview Dr in Bradfordsville, VA, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 19th, charged with theft. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $5,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
