24-year-old Local Musician Jared Christopher Hall was observed sleeping in his driver’s seat at the Madison Church of Christ parking lot around 5:01 a.m. on June 30th. When officers arrived, they noticed his vehicle was running and in gear, so they deployed spikes between the tires if he tried fleeing. Officers then banged on his window, waking him up and making him exit the car. Officers instructed Hall to turn off his vehicle, and in the process, he let his foot off his brake, and his vehicle slightly traveled backward. This resulted in Hall’s front tires being spiked and the vehicle nearly hitting the officers’ patrol car. Hall took sobriety tests, performed poorly, and was detained. Under Miranda, he admitted to having four Coors Lights and smoking one “dispensary pre-roll.” During a subsequent search, officers noticed he reeked of alcohol. Then, Hall told police he felt “more drunk than high,” adding that he was a 5/10 on the “drunk scale.” Hall said he was headed to meet his friend after a party and decided to sleep it off at the church. Hall was then taken into custody for driving under the influence.


Jared Christopher Hall of Cabot Dr in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on June 30th, charged with driving under the influence. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
