Staff at the Margaritaville Hotel in downtown Nashville say 43-year-old Jeff Serra was extremely intoxicated and causing a disturbance, so he was asked to leave. He closed out his tab but refused to leave the property, stating he had an issue with the amount he had just paid. Metro Nashville Police arrived to find him extremely intoxicated and still arguing about the tab. He was asked to step outside and discuss the matter with them, but he refused and became more belligerent and escalated to screams and shouts, disrupting other patrons. As police exported him from the property, the entire bar clapped during his departure. A search incident to arrest revealed a rolled marijuana blunt in a cigarette pack and 5 Oxycodone pills that were not in a bottle that was prescribed to him.
