Police were investigating a vehicle crash in which 23-year-old Ethan Carter was a passenger. As he exited the vehicle he was obviously intoxicated, and police say he was disorderly during the entire investigation and continuously stumbled into the roadway, into lanes of traffic, and refused to exit the interstate exit-ramp to an area that was safer for pedestrians. He was eventually taken into custody and charged with public intoxication due to his refusal to care for his own safety in his state of intoxication.
Ethan Michael Carter was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 18th, charged with public intoxication. A commissioner set his bond at $25.
