41-year-old California tourist Scott Nobles was jailed on April 13th after crashing his scooter into the back of an unmarked Metro Police vehicle near 5th and Demonbreun in downtown Nashville. Officers saw Nobles unsteady on his feet and smelled alcohol on him. They asked him if he had anything to drink, and he admitted to drinking a couple of beers and refused to answer any more questions. Nobles refused all testing, and was transported to booking.
26-year-old Titans Superfan Matthew Mattax was ejected from Sunday’s game due to “unruly behavior” and his level of intoxication. As he was escorted to the gates, Mattax began to yell and scream, causing MNPD officers to take notice of him. Due to his continued behavior, officers decided to take him into custody for public intoxication, but Mattax pulled away and refused to comply with the arrest. He headbutted Officer Sharpe and spit in his face before he could be fully restrained. Once at the jail, Mattax again began to spit on officers, hitting Officer Malone with his saliva multiple times and Officer Studer three times before he was “guided to a bench” in holding.
