Metro Nashville Police responded to a call to assist Nashville Fire medics with a patient Thursday and located 22-year-old Bishop Ware, who NFD says was being generally uncooperative. He was pacing around the parking lot and refused to speak to officers. While attempting to determine what they could do to assist, the property manager of the location notified police that Ware had been asked to leave multiple times and he continued to refuse to leave. With no apparent medical necessity, and refusal to leave the property when asked, he was transported to booking and charged with criminal trespass and resisting arrest as he attempted to pull away from officers when being cuffed.
#LISTEN: “There’s an article on Scoop: Nashville about an arrest that happened back in 2020 … by the article being up in would be in violation of his [client’s] constitutional right to a fair trial… I’ll take it up with the judge, and if I need to, get an order to have it taken down”… those are the words spoken by Nashville Public Defender Kevin Coker as he called Scoop: Nashville owner, Jason Steen. A recording of the phone call is included in the story.
