54-year-old Billy Kroese refused to leave the doorway of Layla’s Honky Tonk when police arrived. Police instructed Billy to leave the business’s curtilage and noticed several signs of intoxication. Reportedly, Billy then became aggressive and started shouting explicit language. He still refused to leave the doorway, and police attempted to detain him. Billy pulled away but was eventually arrested and transported to booking. While in booking, he was disruptive and kicked officers George Poulos and Bryan Malone in their genitals.
Billy Scott Kroese of Oakwell Farms Ln in Hermitage, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 3rd, charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication, resisting arrest, and two counts of assault of an officer. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $4,600.
