On October 7th, 51-year-old Matthew Landan was observed in the area of the Walk of Fame Park just outside the Phish concert in downtown Nashville. Officers described a sea of fifty to one hundred people who were all partaking in inhaling nitrous oxide via inflated balloons. Officers noted some were talkative; some were talking about how high they were; some were quiet, while others vomited. While patrolling, officers witnessed two of them actively filling balloons as one fled on foot; the other, Landan, was detained after resisting and then taken into custody.
Matthew Landan of W Oak Street in Louisville, KY, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on October 8th, charged with resisting arrest and toxic vapors. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $3,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
