Metro Nashville Police responded to the Tin Roof bar on Broadway to find 44-year-old Elizabeth Marie Barnard extremely intoxicated and having difficulty standing upright while reeking of alcohol. A Nashville Fire medic cart transported her to the staging area at 1st & Broadway, where she was being transitioned to an NFD ambulance for transport. She became combative with first responders, cursing at them and sticking her fingers in the face of medics. She then refused all treatment and medical care and was taken into custody for public intoxication.
NOTE: Davidson County Sheriff’s Department staff at the mobile booking unit decided not to take her mugshot in her extreme state of intoxication, instead relying on a two-decade-old mugshot from 2003 related to a driver’s license issue— a courtesy not afforded to other drunken downtown partygoers — to suffice as the current mugshot. A representative of Sheriff Daron Hall’s Office says “it was a misunderstanding” that they neglected to take a current mugshot during an arrest.
60-year-old John Underdown entered a building on 1st Ave S. in downtown Nashville late Saturday night while highly intoxicated.

After he continued to refuse to go on about his night, he was taken into custody and charged with public intoxication.
Officers working the Entertainment District Initiative in downtown Nashville Saturday night were notified that a bartender had been assaulted by a patron, 43-year-old Jesse Horn.

21-year-old Emma Sprague was found passed out on the sidewalk by Metro Nashville Police Officers working the Entertainment District Initiative near 3rd & Broadway in the early hours of Sunday morning.

When 39-year-old Shamika Jones crossed into oncoming traffic in an attempt to pass a car and had a head-on collision Wednesday afternoon on Lebanon Pike, she was still smoking a joint when officers arrived on the scene. She reported she had also smoked a bit earlier in the day, on her way to work. She said the last thing she remembered before the crash was leaving her workplace, the Whole Foods in downtown Nashville, and then being in a crash. Inside her car was 1.2 grams of marijuana and a SMC-380 pistol under the driver’s seat. She claimed to have a felony conviction out of California, but officers were unable to locate any such charge.
Police say Dakota Cummingham and Alex Morton Oneal admit to driving by a car meet of “street racers” on February 4th and holding a pair of rubber testicles toward the people in the crowd while yelling “this meet sucks” and “suck my truck nuts”. They say a red Camero pulled up to them and three males exited the car with guns pointed at them while the driver of the Camero pulled a handgun and chambered a round while telling them they were going to die that day. Police located the vehicle, with the driver, 20-year-old Tyler Cobb, still inside, two blocks away and took him into custody. Cobb also had an outstanding warrant from two weeks prior when he vandalized a car that stopped to take photos of him doing donuts in the middle of the roadway.
Police say 39-year-old Samantha Crawford admitted to snorting a line of heroin at a South Nashville Mapco before she got behind the wheel of her car. She doesn’t remember anything after that, however, her passenger says he had to suddenly grab the steering wheel and attempt to navigate the vehicle for a mile before he was able to get it to stop after she nodded off from an overdose. Nashville Fire responded to the scene and revived her with two doses of Narcan. She is charged with DUI, and driving on a suspended license, and is free on pre-trial release. Crawford’s nursing license was suspended for drug use earlier this year after she admitted to using drugs while working as a jail nurse.
