Metro Nashville Police responded to a home on 11th Ave N. on Monday after Rachel Elrod called to report her ex-boyfriend, 31-year-old Jezreel Castillo, was attempting to gain entry to her home. Castillo was able to make entry into the attached garage but was unable to make entry into the living area as the interior door lock was engaged. Elrod says Castillo then began to text and call her repeatedly — 15 times within 30 minutes in a threatening and harassing manner, leaving her in fear for her life. He fled prior to police arriving but was booked on the charges a few hours later.
Metro Nashville Police say a 43-year-old man appears to have committed suicide Friday morning as he was struck and killed by a train near the Nesbitt Lane Crossing in Madison at approximately 1:15 a.m. Detectives interviewed the train crew and reviewed footage from the train’s forward-facing camera. The footage shows the man lying on the tracks alone, and he is seen raising his head to watch the oncoming train before laying back down on the tracks as the train approaches him. Police say his body did not have any other obvious injuries other than those consistent with having been run over by a train.
30-year-old Brittany Nicole Cline was stopped by Belle Meade Police just after 1 a.m. Friday due to an expired tag on her vehicle. As Officer Haley Doty spoke with Cline during the traffic stop, she could smell alcohol coming from Cline’s breath and noticed a Modelo tallboy in the center cup holder and 4 empty White Claw cans along with a variety pack of unopened cans. Cline performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was unable to provide a proper sample for a breathalyzer, despite three attempts. She was charged with DUI and transported to booking.
Nashville detectives on Thursday executed a narcotics-related search warrant at the residence of Nicole Madden (of Renee’s Cakes), 29, at 6625 Charlotte Pike, which resulted in the seizure of 58 marijuana plants, 42 grams of cocaine, three rifles, four handguns, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and $4,050 cash.
