Tourist Ryan Whitney refuses to use a crosswalk in downtown Nashville, resists arrest

Share this article...

Metro Nashville Police stopped 40-year-old Ryan Whitney as he was attempting to cross Broadway in downtown Nashville where there was no crosswalk. Whitney walked a short distance away and then returned and began to drunkenly yell and scream at the police, demanding an explanation of why he could not cross there. Police told him to move along about his evening multiple times and gave him one final chance to walk away before advising him he was under arrest for public intoxication. He then resisted arrest and had to be placed against a wall by multiple officers to get him in both handcuffs.
