61-year-old Raymond Arena was jailed on Saturday after police were flagged down by security at Robert’s Western World on Broadway. Officers told police that Arena had been kicked out of the establishment for playing with the drums. He was visibly agitated, argumentative, and yelling. He admitted to drinking beers and stated he was “tipsy.” Arena became upset that the officers weren’t giving him water or allowing him to sober up. He told officers that he also hit some shelves and was singing into the microphone but didn’t believe that was cause to get kicked out. Due to the fact that Arena wouldn’t calm down officers believed he would continue his behavior and was taken into custody.
Raymond Anthony Arena was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on October 29th, charged with public intoxication. His bond was set at $100.
