36-year-old Mark Metz was charged with theft, resisting arrest, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, and possession of a firearm in commission of a felony when police responded to a call of one man threatening to shoot another.

On October 9th, Metro Nashville Police Department Officers reported to 5000 Crosby Lane in regard to a dispute involving a handgun. When police arrived on scene, they found a man matching their description standing in front of the house with a holster, Mark Metz. Reportedly, officers could tell that the bulge in Metz’s pants meant that the holster was not empty.

Police began to question Metz, who told them everything they needed to know was inside the house. When attempting to pat him down for weapons, Metz took off on foot between neighboring houses until he was caught about a block away. Police recovered a black Glock 31 with grass in the barrel that he tried to throw out while running. Upon search, they also found a small plastic baggy of white powder believed to be cocaine, and a driver’s license belonging to someone else.
