21-year-old Emma Sprague was found passed out on the sidewalk by Metro Nashville Police Officers working the Entertainment District Initiative near 3rd & Broadway in the early hours of Sunday morning. She was heavily intoxicated and refused all medical assistance. She did not have a working cell phone and officers were unable to locate any of her friends in the vicinity. Unable to care for herself, she was transported to booking and charged with public intoxication.
Officers working the EDI (Entertainment District Initiative) in downtown Nashville Friday observed 32-year-old Dustin Christopher Slade in a fight with another person at 5th & Broadway. While the other party didn’t wish to prosecute for the assault, officers determined Slade was too intoxicated to care for himself and attempted to place him into custody for public intoxication. Initially, Slade ran from the scene; however, officers were able to catch up with him a short distance away.
