Metro Nashville Police say 46-year-old April Watkins crashed her vehicle into the concrete outside of MNPD Headquarters, located at 600 Murfreesboro Pike, in the early morning hours of December 3rd. A Metro Security Officer disabled her vehicle so she wouldn’t drive away, and responding police officers found the “highly intoxicated” woman squatting while urinating on the steps of the facility. She was half-dressed with her legging pulled down and shirt half-off, according to a police report. She was so intoxicated that field sobriety tests were unable to be performed, and officers say they found prescribed Hydrocodone in her vehicle during a tow inventory, and believe that could have attributed to the unusually high level of intoxication.
