33-year-old Adam Roy Smith put his hand on a Metro Nashville Police Officer’s shoulder and asked him why he had to leave and what authority the officer had to make him do so, as he was being kicked out of The Stage on Broadway in the early hours of Sunday morning. Smith had been involved in an altercation at the bar and was asked to leave. He returned later that night and became disruptive a second time, blocking other patrons from entering the venue. As police were taking him into custody for public intoxication, Smith became more aggressive and yelled and screamed at an officer, inches from their face.
Shawn Cates and David Carney met with police Saturday evening to report their neighbor, 39-year-old Jennifer Croy, had just fired a gun at them, and they have the incident recorded on video. The argument was about shared driveway space between the three, and they say the disagreement gradually escalated until Jennifer produced a handgun and pointed the gun at each of the victims, and fired a single shot in their direction. Officer met with Croy, who denied ever pointing a gun at either man but stated she did have a handgun in her possession. Officers played the video for Croy, which clearly showed her pointing and firing the gun, and she continued to deny what the video showed.
