22-year-old Peter Lovell was booked early Friday morning for annoying people at Whiskey Row. Officers were flagged down by security, who stated that Lovell was threatening to fight people in the area. He was also acting aggressively toward workers at a nearby hot dog stand. Police approached Lovell and informed him that he was drunk in public and gave him the opportunity to call his wife, but the number he provided did not work. He then lied to officers, stating that he had a cab waiting for him on Broadway. He finally got into a cab but couldn’t tell the driver the address of where he was staying. He was also dropping his garbage from his hot dog all over the inside of the taxi, causing the driver to refuse him a ride. Officers noted that throughout the incident, Lovell continually asked the same question over and over again, accusing officers of never answering his question even though they had answered him several times. Officers determined Lovell was unable to take care of himself and he was arrested for public intoxication.
Peter Joseph Lovell was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 3rd and charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $550.
