Metro Nashville Police responded to the Waffle House on Donelson Pike late Thursday night for a fight-in-progress call. Officers separated the breakfast brawlers, and none of the involved parties wished to seek assault charges; however, they were all asked to leave the property. 29-year-old Rayna Holmes refused to leave and told officers she’d rather go to jail. Not wanting to disappoint anyone this close to the holidays, officers obliged her request and transported her to booking, charging her with criminal trespass.
42-year-old Lucas Levingston fled from police after tearing through a blocked section of Donelson Pike this week at a high rate of speed. Officers say Levingston was driving a green Fiat 500 and ignored a line of police cars with flashing lights and emergency equipment activated while protecting an active accident scene. He locked all four wheels and slid to a stop just feet from an Airport Police patrol unit. He then drove away from the scene, and the officers initially lost him. A short time later, Levingston drove back to the same intersection and was stopped by police. He refused to answer any questions and declined all tests. Officers say he reeked of alcohol, was uneasy on his feet, and was obviously intoxicated. He is charged with DUI, evading arrest in a motor vehicle, and violation of the implied consent law.
23-year-old Atalaya Lopez drove through a barrage of emergency vehicles with flashing lights that were blocking the roadway for a police investigation on Donelson Pike early Monday morning in her Chevy Impala at a very high rate of speed. Officers eventually got the vehicle stopped near Knapp Road and observed her extreme level of intoxication and an open container in her cupholder. While she was being placed into custody for DUI, her passenger, 23-year-old Ladasha Bledsoe, repeatedly got in and out of the vehicle despite being told to stay inside the car. Bledsoe then got out a final time, dropped her pants, and exposed herself to police officers while urinating on the roadway. She was charged with indecent exposure.
