24-year-old Isaiah ‘Zay’ Kahlil Yancey was booked on a citation this week after Metro Nashville Police found 0.5 grams of marijuana inside his gym bag during a traffic stop outside the Mercy Lounge on July 22nd for alleged expired tags. Officers say there was a “strong smell” of marijuana coming from the vehicle, and when asked, Yancy volunteered that there was a small amount of marijuana in the Altima.
Police say 65-year-old Robert Coleman drove his vehicle through a crosswalk, onto a sidewalk, and continued to where officers were standing for a road-closure setup. Coleman was reportedly confused and stared at police officers with a “dazed look”. He was heavily intoxicated and had to brace against the car when he exited. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests, and blew a 0.196% BAC on a breathalyzer.
He was transported to jail and charged with DUI.
27-year-old Jonathan Galindo was charged with possessing a suspended license and tampering with evidence after he threw a syringe and baggie out of the window before the driver sped away from the traffic stop.
