26-year-old Vanderbilt Football Player Bridges “BJ” Anderson was booked in the early hours of December 8th after officers were flagged down in front of Barstool Nashville on 2nd Avenue in regards to a man being restrained by security. When officers arrived, they observed Anderson visibly drunk and being held to the ground by bar security. Officers then placed him into cuffs and began the interview. Security told officers that Anderson tried to enter the bar with alcohol hidden inside a Gatorade bottle and was denied because of it and his level of intoxication. Anderson threw the bottle out and left the line, only to re-enter the line shortly after and be told again that he may not enter the bar. After being denied, Anderson tried to forcefully enter the bar, pushing security as they stood before him to block entry, forcing another security guard to wrap his arms around Anderson to stop him. This only angered Anderson, and he began to fight the security guards, biting both of them. Officers observed bite marks on both security guards.
