Vanderbilt University student Kristen Lambert says she was in a campus parking lot when 34-year-old William Lozelle Jenkins walked up to her car and approached her driver’s side window, blocking her from leaving.

23-year-old Atalaya Lopez drove through a barrage of emergency vehicles with flashing lights that were blocking the roadway for a police investigation on Donelson Pike early Monday morning in her Chevy Impala at a very high rate of speed. Officers eventually got the vehicle stopped near Knapp Road and observed her extreme level of intoxication and an open container in her cupholder. While she was being placed into custody for DUI, her passenger, 23-year-old Ladasha Bledsoe, repeatedly got in and out of the vehicle despite being told to stay inside the car. Bledsoe then got out a final time, dropped her pants, and exposed herself to police officers while urinating on the roadway. She was charged with indecent exposure.
Elizabeth Lyall Carson called police in a tizzy Tuesday, stating that a “homeless man on drugs and with mental issues” was running naked on the sidewalk near Hillwood High School around 6 p.m. We’re not sure why she believed the man, identified as 35-year-old Dustin Dunham, had mental health issues, was homeless, or was on drugs, but she was adamant about it to police and in dozens of social media comments after she posted his naked photo online. In fact, she says when she drove back by a few minutes later, he was wearing shorts and shoes. When police arrived, he was clothed, so Elizbeth had to become the private prosecutor on the case, and he was charged with indecent exposure. We’re told Carson was “excited and proud” to swear out the warrant on the man, as she shared her adventure to her friends on social media, which includes nearly every judge, politician, and Belle Meade resident in the city.
