27-year-old Nicholas Rourke was kicked out of Tootsie’s and refused to leave on August 5th. Trooper Michael Hickmon was flagged down by a Tootsie’s security guard, who said Nicholas was kicked out 30 minutes prior but did not want to leave. The trooper made contact with Nicholas and noticed clear signs of intoxication. Nicholas told police that he was asked to leave earlier but remained on the property. He was asked by the trooper to leave multiple times but kept speaking nonsense to the trooper. After he stumbled twice, Nicholas was asked to find or call his friends, but he refused. Due to him being a nuisance and a danger to himself, he was jailed for public intoxication.
Nicholas Ryan Rourke was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 25th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $100.
