25-year-old David White was involved in a crash on Old Charlotte Pike late Saturday night and called his brother for assistance. His brother then contacted Metro Nashville Police, who responded to the scene and located White, who appeared to be intoxicated with bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. Officers say White laughed and joked throughout the entire interaction and admitted to consuming “two alcoholic beverages” hours before the crash. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was transported to booking and charged with DUI.
Metro Nashville Police arrived at a residence on Clearbrook Drive Saturday to find multiple bullet holes in the grass of the yard, as well as a shotgun shell. Christian Venson called 911 to report that his girlfriend’s brother, 36-year-old Julian Michael Keith knocked on his door then he heard a gunshot. He had also knocked on the door of his mother, Julia Keith. As Venson ventured outside with his girlfriend, Johanna Keith, they observed Julian standing with a shotgun in his hand. He began ranting about an incident from two months prior and stated he was angry. He then asked Venson, “Do you want to come to get the gun out of my hands?” Venson replied “no” to the question, and Keith continued, “Because I would blow your head off.” Venson told him that he didn’t want to die today, prompting Keith to turn and fire another shot into the ground with the shotgun. Keith then fled in his vehicle before officers arrived. He was then located and taken into custody. Venson says he believes Keith acted this way because he had been up for 24 hours due to his ADHD.
19-year-old Jacob Brewster says he was inside a residence at the Hillmeade Apartments late Friday night with some friends after bringing them home and drinking some tequila with them. He says he “got in his feelings” about a situation and decided to leave. He was too intoxicated to drive home and decided to sleep in his vehicle in the parking lot. Before sleeping, he continued to drink from a bottle of vodka in the car.
A short time later, around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, Metro Nashville Police responded to an unrelated shots-fired call at the complex and came across Brewster in the parking lot, who was now slumped over the driver’s seat with the car running and the door wide open. Brewster was unresponsive for several minutes with vomit both inside and outside the car and all over himself. Officers were able to turn off the car, and Brewster eventually woke up and tried to put the car in gear and leave. He eventually blew a 0.123% BAC on a breathalyzer.
First responders located 21-year-old Matthew Zito asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle at the intersection of Brownlee Drive and Brook Hollow Road just after 1 a.m. Sunday.

Nashville Fire was able to place blocks in front of his tires so he couldn’t move any further and then removed him from the vehicle. Officers arrived as he was being escorted to the ambulance. Zito stated he had “3 or 4 drafts” at a bar on 21st Ave, where he was drinking with his co-workers prior to driving. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was transported to booking.
