46-year-old Nathan Rich was aggressive, refusing to get out of the roadway of Murfreesboro Pike on December 5th. Officers arrived and asked Rich to leave the road again, but he insisted on not leaving the street. Rich advised officers that he would fight before he got arrested, so they detained him. He actively resisted, kicking and tensing his muscles, refusing to put his hands behind his back. While conducting a search, officers located a glass pipe containing a white powdery substance. Rich was taken into custody for disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
