A Nashville man says he woke up around 3 a.m. Saturday after hearing someone in his Gulch apartment in downtown Nashville. Police arrived to discover a very intoxicated 21-year-old Cara Michaelson in the man’s home, petting his dog.
Police say they discovered Cara Michaelson at the Capitol View Apartments in the Gulch and determined she had tried to open several doors in the complex and found this one to be unlocked. She reportedly entered the man’s home and was petting his dog when he discovered her just after 3 a.m. Saturday. Court documents show she was completely unaware of her location, nor knew where she lived. Despite multiple attempts to assist her with finding someone to pick her up, or give her assistance in getting home, she was unable to provide any information. Given her state, she was taken into custody.
Cara K. Michaelson was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail and charged with public intoxication. She was released after the mandatory 8-hour hold for public intoxication arrests.
