Late Saturday night, the top floor of Nudie’s Honky Tonk reached maximum capacity, and security staff positioned themselves at the bottom of the steps to prevent any more patrons from entering that level. As 24-year-old Fort Campbell Soldier Ironne ‘Ron’ Coley attempted to go upstairs, he was stopped by bouncer Deangelo Ridloy, and the two began to argue and cause a large disturbance. Coley then punched the bouncer in the face, knocking him to the floor. Coley then jumped on top of the bouncer and began to beat him. Coley’s friend, fellow soldier Hunter Fairweather, then also assaulted the bouncer while he was down. Police observed a video of the assault and documented multiple injuries on the victim.
Ironne N. Coley of Timothy Ave in Oak Grove, KY, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 13th, charged with disorderly conduct and assault. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
