54-year-old Christopher Park was not wanted at the Holiday Inn and Suites Hotel on 4th Ave, as staff told police when they showed up on September 16th. A complainant told police that she did not want to prosecute Christopher, who was also staying at the hotel. The hotel security asked the MNPD officers who arrived just to escort Christopher off the property. Security and the officers contacted Christopher in his hotel room, and the security told him that he was no longer allowed to stay on the premises and needed to vacate. Christopher told them, “That’s not going to happen.” The officers told him that he would have to leave or be charged with criminal trespass, to which he responded, “Do what you got to do.” Police gave him several chances to leave, but instead, Christopher sat down in his room and refused to comply with police commands.
25-year-old Christopher Charles Park was found passed out on the sidewalk near 12th & Broadway just before 1 a.m. Sunday. Park reeked of alcohol and was unsteady on his feet when he attempted to stand. He was not aware he was in Nashville and was unable to care for himself. He was placed into custody, and while Officer Steiner was tying the report in the front seat of the police car, Park spat in his face from the rear seat.
