Roger Lewis Eddings, 63, remains jailed today, charged with assuming a fighting stance and punching a Metro Nashville Police officer square in the face when the officer attempted to remove him from the roadway.
Tanesha Clay, who we covered last year when she kicked an MNPD Officer in the testicles twice, sending him to the hospital, has now assaulted another officer, biting his middle finger last night during an attempt to arrest her, and refusing to let go. NFD eventually offered to sedate her so she could be transported.
A man who locked himself in a Checkers restroom, eventually exited, punched a Metro Police officer in the face, escaped his grip multiple times during a scuffle, and was eventually tased by other officers after he fled the scene. Leroy Cane, 30, arrested.
Inmate Chad Edwards, 24, who is serving his first year, of a six-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter, now faces an additional charge of assault of an officer after he tossed urine on her face, also resulting in another inmate doing the same.
As soon as officers arrived, they heard Matthew Stevenson yelling “I ain’t fucking going anywhere!”, before throwing a punch at a security guard and falling down.
James Scales, 26, was ordered to stand up and place his hands behind his back, but he had other plans. Scales placed his arms on the inside of his shirt, and then his hands into his pants, and told officers “You ain’t fucking handcuffing me!”, and sat back down on his hospital bed.
Zahnaee Chaney, 21, was not going down without a fight. When officers realized she had five outstanding warrants, she fled. It took 3 officers to restrain and cuff her once they caught up, and she still managed to assault one with her feet.
