31-year-old Pennsylvania tourist Roy Hastings was observed in the area of the Walk of Fame Park just outside the Phish concert in downtown Nashville this weekend. Officers described a sea of fifty to one hundred people who were all partaking in inhaling nitrous oxide via inflated balloons. Officers noted some were talkative; some were talking about how high they were; some were quiet, while others vomited.
Hastings was wearing a multi-colored shirt and blue jeans while holding a nitrous oxide tank between his legs as he passed out balloons. He claimed the tank wasn’t his when officers approached him. Police found balloons and determined them to be drug paraphernalia. Hastings was taken into custody and charged with a felony toxic vapors offense.
Roy Hastings of Daly Street in Philadelphia, PA, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on October 7th, charged with toxic vapors and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $2,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
