25-year-old Elijah Rayne Ledbetter was lying on the ground in front of Ole Red’s Bar on Broadway in the early hours of April 6th. Officers observed this and approached him, where they noticed he was highly intoxicated. Ledbetter told them he was alone in Nashville with nowhere to go, so officers tried to give him options for a place to stay. When Ledbetter tried to walk away to one of the places, he started stumbling and could not stay on his feet. Ledbetter was deemed too impaired to care for himself, so officers went to detain him. This was when Ledbetter became resistive, refusing to put his hands behind his back. Ledbetter was taken into custody for resisting arrest and public intoxication.
