20-year-old John ‘Lake’ Lovorn was taken to the ground by a bouncer at Layla’s Honky Tonk on Broadway in downtown Nashville in the early hours of Saturday morning, and the two began to wrestle on the sidewalk. Metro Nashville Police Officers noticed the commotion and separated the two. According to a friend with him, Lovorn had been drinking nearby at The Stage on Broadway, but it was unclear what prompted the altercation with the other security staff. Lovorn fought with officers as they pulled him away, eventually causing them also to tackle him to the ground to detain him. One officer injured his hand during the struggle. In addition to his actual valid license, Lovorn had a fake North Carolina ID in his possession under the name ‘Lake Lee Leonard,’ which stated he was 21 and contained the actual ID number belonging to a Mark Carr.
John Lake Lovorn of Chapel Hill Road in Milan, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on December 30, charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, underage drinking, public intoxication, and identity theft. He is free on a $3,500 bond.
