Public restrooms at multiple convenience stores across Mt. Juliet, Lebanon, and Hermitage have been vandalized for several weeks — the writing asks the reader to call or text controversial pastor and adulterer Greg Locke and includes his personal cell phone number. Locke recently became quite ungodly when he found out local news outlet Scoop: Wilson had published unredacted photos at the start of his Sunday service. As his phone was flooded with hundreds of messages and calls, Locke decided to speak on the matter from the pulpit… and vowed to show up at their door or send his lawyer to force them to remove the images (video in story, along with full images). Remove the images, they did not.

VIDEO: MNPD Detective decommissioned after assaulting a homeless man on a public street
The Metro Nashville Police Department has decommissioned Detective William Thorowgood after he assaulted a homeless man on a public roadway outside his home, who he claimed was littering. He attacks the man, knocking him to the ground and placing a knee on his chest while telling him he’s detained and he would be in cuffs if he had them with him. Thorowgood, who has been with the department for ten years and served as a Fraud Detective, reported the incident to his supervisor on Monday, December 12, and was decommissioned the same day. After the assault in the video [full 17 minutes included in the story], Thorowgood calls 911 and reports the homeless man is armed and advancing toward him, both of which the video shows to be untrue. This is a developing story.
John Swoboda identified as man who jumped from 36th floor of Four Seasons in downtown Nashville in apparent suicide
Metro Nashville Police have identified 29-year-old John Christian Swoboda as the man who jumped from the 36th floor of the Four Seasons Residences building in downtown Nashville on the morning of December 8th in an apparent suicide.

Clarksville won’t investigate touching/sexual harassment complaints on Roxy’s Ryan Bowie; he will continue working with the city’s landmark theatre
In the time since a half-dozen complaints have been received about Roxy Theater Director Ryan Bowie, alleging inappropriate touching, assault, sexual harassment, stalking, and inappropriate relationships with actors under his employ, two members of the Roxy’s Board of Directors have now resigned in protest as its own executive committee cleared Bowie of any wrongdoing, despite making changes including an HR director position and an “intimacy choreographer.”
Bowie’s name is closely associated with the Roxy Theatre, the City of Clarksville, and the Children’s Theatre programs; however, the city, led by Mayor Joe Pitts, says they can’t investigate the allegations because he’s not actually a city employee and isn’t bound to any ethics rules the city may have in place.
Emails obtained by Clarksville Today show the Roxy Board determined that “any of the allegations made against Mr. Bowie do not rise to the level of liability from a legal standpoint,” so they would no longer investigate the matter, either.
Citizens have been clear, whether there is a legal liability or not, where there’s smoke, there is likely fire, and this many complaints didn’t happen overnight or from single incidents. Citizens, actors, and even the APSU Threatre program professors have all made it clear — The Roxy can’t continue on its current path with the city and the children’s theatre program with Ryan Bowie at the helm, and if we’re waiting on a “legal liability,” the damage will have already been done to the Roxy & the City of Clarksville. Bowie is an agenda item on Thursday’s City Council Meeting at 4:30 p.m. [more documents inside full story…]
Police: Man raised his head to watch oncoming train before it ran over him Friday in Madison
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.
Actors say Clarksville’s Roxy Theatre Director Ryan Bowie harassed, stalked, touched without consent
An actor at the Roxy Regional Theatre in Clarksville says he and a dozen others have been victims of harassment and inappropriate conduct by Director Ryan Bowie for at least the past year, with some complaints going back much further. In January, after several actors detailed formal complaints, the theatre’s Board of Directors & the Executive Committee admitted “mistakes have been made” and determined that Bowie, along with other staff, would enroll in “extensive HR training,” and someone on-site would be trained as an “Intimacy Choreographer.” Additionally, an HR Director would be appointed. Now that the city is directly involved with the theatre and its liability, the actors, and some city council members, are still concerned about ongoing issues at the downtown Clarksville landmark and are calling for action — they want Bowie removed as the Executive Director, weary of several lawsuit threats involving his actions.
