Friday evening, Gerrod Hathaway was having dinner with his mother at Romano’s Macaroni Grill inside Opry Mills Mall, when apparently he got up from the table, went outside the restaurant into the mall area, and began destroying everything in sight. We have video below:
Hathaway destroyed a light up sign, broke a guitar and other musical equipment, and smashed out a window of Romano’s Macaroni Grill with a metal stanchion. Damage is estimated at over $5,000. According to an employee of Macaroni Grill, he had only been served lemonade. He stated that the guy stood up and called one of the Macaroni grill servers a “bitch”, yelled some more things, and then went over to Madame Tussauds where he picked up the stanchion that he used to break a sign and the Macaroni Grill Window.
Gerrod Hathaway was arrested on 4 counts of vandalism, and bailed out via R & Sons Bonding just after 11AM Saturday morning on a $3,000 bond and will appear in court on 01/19/2018.
