26-year-old Hunter Bridges was kicked out of Whiskey Bent on Broadway in downtown Nashville late Friday night and was so combative with security that MNPD officers became involved. The Indiana man resisted all efforts at calming down and eventually kicked at Officer Nicholas Pernell while being hobble restrained. While completing the arrest report, Bridges began making racial slurs at Pernell and spitting in his patrol car. Pernell, one of Nashville’s literal finest, a model turned policeman, handled the situation professionally and drove the man to jail while his hands and feet were shackled in the back of his patrol car.
