36-year-old Charles Zachary Watkins was sitting on the sidewalk near Jason Aldean’s Rooftop Bar in the early hours of April 13th. A passerby observed this and waved officers down. When officers approached Watkins, they noticed he could not stand up independently and smelled strongly of alcohol. They asked him if he had any friends to which he advised that they had left him. Watkins then told officers he was staying at a nearby hotel, so they tried to help him there because he couldn’t walk on his own. Watkins repeatedly stopped, refusing to cooperate, telling officers he was “fine.” Eventually, Watkins was deemed unable to care for himself and was taken into custody for public intoxication.
