25-year-old Youssef Hanna was seen shooting his firearm from the backseat of a silver sedan near Larry’s Ultra Lounge in the early hours of February 20th. Jamie Clark witnessed this and alerted the authorities, advising them that after the shots were fired, the sedan went down Murfreesboro Pike. Officers received an update on the vehicle, located it approaching Donelson Pike, and noticed the driver, later identified as Hanna’s father, arguing with Hanna. When officers initiated their emergency equipment and conducted a traffic stop, Hanna was the first to exit the vehicle. Officers also detained his mom, who was in the passenger seat, and his father, the driver. Detectives located a pistol grip in plain view in the pocket behind the driver’s seat, which was later identified as a black Smith & Wesson M&P Bodyguard .380 caliber that was loaded with a round in the chamber. Then, officers found a bag in the backseat containing 174 rounds of .380 caliber ammunition, magazines, and two more empty .380 shell casings. Hanna had an empty silver magazine in his pocket when officers searched him. Hanna admitted to shooting in the air from the car after drinking 4-5 beers and 4-5 shots of vodka at Larry’s Ultra Lounge. Officers tried to explain that shooting your firearm while intoxicated is a crime, and Hanna stated that he was “just having fun.” Hanna then explained that he thought it was okay to shoot it in the air and that he did not point it at anyone. Hanna was taken into custody for possessing a weapon while under the influence.
