55-year-old Brian Dowling was observed in the area of the Walk of Fame Park just outside the Phish concert in downtown Nashville this weekend. 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.
When approached by officers, Dowling was told to drop the balloon he was carrying; he then released the balloon, picked it up, and inhaled it before running down the sidewalk and getting caught by the police. Dowling was taken into custody for inhaling or possessing intoxicating fumes and resisting arrest.
Brian Joseph Dowling of W 51st Ave in Arvada, CO, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on October 9th, charged with resisting arrest and toxic vapors. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
