35-year-old Rhonda Cain of South Carolina was seen near the Walk of Fame Park near the Phish concert in downtown Nashville. Officers described a sea of fifty to a hundred people all filling and inhaling inflated balloons filled with nitrous oxide. Officers noticed that some were talking about how high they were, others were quiet, and some were even actively vomiting. 

Cain was noticed by officers allegedly filling balloons for people out of the back of a black wagon before handing them off to multiple individuals. Upon noticing officers, Cain reportedly dropped a balloon and removed her hand from the nitrous oxide canister. Although she attempted to distance herself from the canister, officers brought Cain in on the charge of distributing toxic vapors.
