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.
20-year-old Joseph Tannous was with a friend at the Barstool Sports bar in downtown Nashville early Sunday morning when he attempted to use a fake ID to gain entry to the venue. Security took the fake ID from Tannous and would not return it. Tannous then contacted the police in an attempt to retrieve his ID card. Officers reported the person on the ID was obviously not Tannous, and he was unable to provide any matching information. Tannous moved toward Officer Casey Lopez and attempted to snatch the fake ID from him, assaulting the officer in the process.
Joseph Musa Tannous of Pond Valley Cir in Penfield, NY, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 3rd, charged with criminal impersonation and assault of an officer. A judicial commissioner set his bond at 2,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
