Eric Church has fan arrested at his new bar, Chief’s — Brody Goins

21-year-old Brody Goins, son of Tennessee Coordinator of Elections Mark Goins, waited by the alleyway door for Eric Church’s autograph around 11:05 p.m. at Chief’s Bar, Church’s establishment, on April 18th. Security at the bar flagged officers down and explained that Church and his family were trying to exit the building, stating he was not doing autographs then. Officers approached Goins and his friend and told them that the security team wanted them to move away from the door and the vehicle so Church could leave. Goins told police that he was in a public area and would not be moving.

Then, officers told Goins that he was blocking the vehicle from moving back into the alleyway so the occupants could leave. Goins said he was only there for an autograph, a video, and some pictures. The head of security told him that, unfortunately, Eric would not be signing any autographs at this time because he wanted to leave quickly. Security then told officers they deemed Goins a medium-level threat. Goins became argumentative and continued telling them he was not going because he was not committing a crime, and then he asked to speak with a supervisor. When Sergeant Bennett arrived, he informed him that he was obstructing a passageway. Goins was taken into custody for obstructing the passageway on April 19th.
