Trio charged in head-stomping Broadway brawl #VisitMusicCity

A trio was charged in a brutal Broadway Brawl early Saturday morning in front of Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, but none of them for the actual assault, just for being drunk and disorderly, despite Metro Nashville Police Officer Mark Miracle documenting he watched one of the trio, Eric Broersma, “stomp on the man’s head who was on the ground, then continue walking down Broadway”. Alandra Caruthers and Marshaun Payne were also arrested.

AUDIO: Fireworks began while police & helicopter were in blast/fallout zone -“someone should be fired” heard on radio traffic

As the nation watched nervous TV hosts try to fill space as the Nashville fireworks were delayed over a half-hour Sunday night, behind-the-scene a lot was happening. Several suspected trespassers in the blast/fallout zone caused MNPD officers to search for them in a building with personnel and a helicopter – and then suddenly someone started the show, catching 8 MNPD officers and a helicopter pilot in the immediate airspace by surprise. We have the audio from their radio traffic #LISTEN
