21-year-old Alahna Leonardo was taking a mini-vacation to the Opryland Hotel this weekend, when police say she got so intoxicated she was unsteady and slurring her speech. She called Metro Police to report a stolen wallet but decided to just walk back to the hotel when they arrived and then told them ‘Just take me to jail!’ – they did.
