20-year-old Basil Victor Holland was taken into custody for public intoxication and resisting arrest on May 3rd. Around 11:09 p.m., officers were flagged down by Honky Tonk Central security, who advised them that Holland had been asked not to return to the establishment repeatedly. Holland, however, refused and re-entered the establishment again anyway. Security stated officers had spoken with him earlier that night regarding the same issues. Security explained that Holland had tried jumping through the open windows on the side of the bar, trying to get in after being denied access. Honky Tonk Central staff pointed him out to officers, and they approached him, where they noticed he reeked of alcohol and was swaying back and forth, showing signs of impairment as he struggled to provide his ID. Officers deemed Holland a danger to himself and others and detained him for the incident.
