67-year-old Brenda Ross has been involved in more entanglements in the last two months than some folks experience in two decades. In March, Jacinta West received an order of protection against Ross after she said Ross, who was one of the first members of Nashville’s Police Community Oversight Board, stalked her. The two share a circle of friends, some of who warned that Ross had posted on social media alluding she was going o fuck them up and that she was “going to get them.” West says Ross then followed and chased her one night at might as she was picking up a friend, even pulling up beside her and yelling curse words at her. Previously in January, Ross reportedly grabbed West’s wrist while at a nightclub. West states she remains in fear of Ross, and her “political ties” only make the situation worse. Ross is an East Nashvillian who has served on several mayoral-appointed commissions over the years and can be found hobnobbing with the city’s elite on any given night of the week. Ross was jailed on Monday for violating one of the many current orders of protection. She is free on a $1,500 bond.
24-year-old Jessica Bruton said she was supposed to be the designated driver on NYE, however, she told police she “failed” that job after “taking too many shots”. She crashed her car just before 7 a.m., stating she had recently left Jazzy/Sensation and had driven her friends home.
Bruton admitted to smoking marijuana and taking multiple shots of tequila. She said that earlier she was a 10/10 on the intoxication scale. She was charged with DUI and transported to booking.
Paige Bennett, 31, was arrested in the early hours of Thursday morning, charged with driving under the influence, and violation of the implied consent law, after telling officers she had ‘2 Blue Motherf–kers’ at Sensations bar. Bennett has 5 prior arrests, with a combined 8 charges, all of which were dismissed, including a prior DUI.
