29-year-old Austin Cox became disorderly and refused to leave Yee-Haw Brewing in downtown Nashville late Saturday night. Bouncers say he continued to return multiple times until he was eventually detained for trespassing. They flagged down nearby officers who took Cox into custody and charged him with criminal trespassing.
Police were en route to a call at the Wild Beaver Saloon when they encountered 22-year-old Cory Duffey two blocks away fighting in the middle of traffic with two other individuals. Officers stopped to calm the situation and Duffey stated he just wanted to go home, which he said was both Smyrna and Texas. He then advised officers he just needed to find the sidewalk and that will lead him to where he lives. He accused multiple strangers of stealing his phone at random and spelled his name a different way each time he was asked.
Metro Police say 42-year-old tourist Steven Adkins, from Arizona, was intoxicated and wandering around downtown Nashville when his wife finally located him near 4th Ave., where he stopped to “talk to two black guys and started to show off to them” by kicking her in the stomach and punching her. He was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail after the victim flagged down officers, and is now free on a $2,100 bond.
Officers located a very intoxicated 34-year-old Eric Lee Young face down on the sidewalk, apparently sleeping it off, outside of Kid Rock’s Bar around closing time Friday morning. He had trouble standing on his own and thought he was an entirely different bar. He was charged with public intoxication.
