27-year-old Virginia tourist Nathan Shiro was highly intoxicated at Honky Tonk Central on Broadway in downtown Nashville late Friday night and began pushing other patrons and starting fights within the venue. Security asked Shiro to leave, and when he went to collect his belongings, Shiro became disruptive to other patrons again. He then pushed and punched security, who detained him until the arrival of Metro Nashville police. Shiro was jailed and given pre-trial release after 8 a.m. on February 10th.

However, on February 11th, Shiro was arrested a second time after attempting to steal money from a tip jar at Whiskey Row. Shiro was arguing outside of the bar and refusing to leave. Despite Shiro’s attempt to take the tip jar money, Whiskey Row security recovered the money, and Shiro was told to leave. Once outside, Shiro began arguing with security, prompting them to flag down the police. Once police arrived and began investigating, officers were informed Shiro had attempted to steal money from the tip jar. While police investigated at Whiskey Row, Shiro tried to enter Tootsie’s bar. Shiro then began arguing with Tootsie’s security when told he wasn’t allowed in due to them knowing about his incident at Honky Tonk Central. Officers also recognized Shiro from the previous February 10th incident at Honky Tonk Central. Shiro was then taken into custody for disorderly conduct, criminal trespass, and public intoxication.
