26-year-old Roderick Frazier reportedly assaulted a woman and stole her iPhone, according to the victim and security staff at Luke’s 32 Bridge bar in downtown Nashville late Friday night. Security flagged down nearby officers, who attempted to detain Frazier for further investigation. He initially allowed a search of his bag, which quickly yielded a knife, but then became hostile and combative. As officers attempted to place him into handcuffs, he resisted and had to be taken to the ground, where he continued to resist. It took several officers to get him into a patrol car. A search incident to arrest revealed three marijuana joints in his backpack, which he specifically asked for several times on the way to booking.
