32-year-old Joshua Barton was charged with two counts of burglary after he unlawfully entered Nissan Stadium and a month later entered a McDonald’s, walked behind the counter, and threatened an employee after being told the dining room was closed.

On November 8th, Joshua Barton entered the Nissan Stadium, which was not open to the public, and walked around. He was captured on video being stopped by security, who told him to exit. He refused and entered unauthorized areas of the stadium. He showed the guard his identification then proceeded into the Tennessee State University locker room and onto the field taking selfies.

Ashley Smith, a friend of Joshua’s, showed officers a video he made of him walking on the field. A temp agency provided him with a Fox media vest which he was wearing. Barton also stole food from the corridor and threatened the security guard, who returned to the control room and watched Joshua leave the stadium.

On December 8th, Metro Nashville Police officers responded to reports of a burglary at a McDonald’s on 1202 Broadway. Malik Shields told officers Joshua Barton attempted to enter the dining room that was closed due to Covid-19. Malik told Joshua he could not enter and that he had to go to the drive-through. Joshua got upset and pushed through the barrier and entered the dining room.

All other employees and witnesses told him he could not be there and that he needed to exit. He refused, walked behind the counter, and threatened Malik, putting him in fear of harm. Joshua admitted to officers he did push his way into the dining room and went behind the counter. He stated, “I was going to make my own food.”

Joshua Barton was arrested and charged with two counts of burglary. He pled guilty to the lesser charge of aggravated criminal trespass, both counts, on December 14th.
