29-year-old Marine Intelligence Officer Erik Blankenbaker, from California, was subdued by a patron who he pulled a knife on inside Jason Aldean’s Kitchen & Rooftop Bar Friday night in downtown Nashville. The victim of the aggravated assault held him down until security took him into custody, at which time the victim left the scene, not wishing to prosecute. Once police arrived they took Blankenbaker into custody and charged him with public intoxication and disorderly conduct. He is free on pre-trial release.

COMPLAINT:
2021-0585417
ARREST WARRANT / AFFIDAVIT:
Officers responded to a person with a weapon call at 305 Broadway, Jason Aldeans. When officers arrived security had detained the defendant. It was explained, by security, that the defendant pulled a knife on another patron at the bar.

The other patron subdued the defendant and held him until security arrived. The victim of the aggravated assault left prior to officer’s arrival. The defendant’s behavior served no lawful purpose and was offensive to those around him.

Additionally, when officers were talking to the defendant it was observed that the defendant had bloodshot watery eyes, was unsteady on his feet, had a difficult time maintaining a train of thought, and was unsteady on his feet. The odor of alcohol was detected on the defendant’s breath. Due to his apparent intoxicated state, the defendant was a risk to his own safety if left to take care of himself and other safety based on his actions with the pocket knife he carried. The defendant was taken into custody and transported to booking.
