Metro Nashville Police say 44-year-old Brian Benter was planning on going back inside Bridgestone Arena to work with industrial equipment Tuesday afternoon after “having a few drinks” in the middle of his work day. Police came into contact with him after concerned citizens called to report a fight between him and a co-worker, William Poeggel, who were fighting in the parking lot nearby and witnessed one of them being pushed into a Whaley FoodService company van. The men would not tell police what the fight was about, however, due to their level of intoxication and inability to behave like grown adults in public and while at work, they were taken into custody and charged with public intoxication.
Brian Michael Benter was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 12th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $100.
