Metro Nashville Police say 28-year-old Rachel Monahan was heavily intoxicated and riding in the back of a taxi on I-40 when she apparently opened the door and jumped out of the vehicle, running toward the side of the road. The driver alerted police, who located her at mile marker 215, where she told them she had “a lot” to drink, and jumped out of the cab because she thought her taxi driver “was weird”. Officers charged her with public intoxication and transported her to booking.
47-year-old Robert Parker was causing a disturbance at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel this past weekend. Security initially detained him, at which time he was being verbally aggressive toward security staff and Nashville Fire Department medics, who were also on scene. He was charged with public intoxication. It was not immediately known what event caused Parker to become disorderly.
