#LISTEN: “There’s an article on Scoop: Nashville about an arrest that happened back in 2020 … by the article being up in would be in violation of his [client’s] constitutional right to a fair trial… I’ll take it up with the judge, and if I need to, get an order to have it taken down”… those are the words spoken by Nashville Public Defender Kevin Coker as he called Scoop: Nashville owner, Jason Steen. A recording of the phone call is included in the story.
A Goodlettsville resident called police to report a person “dressed like a ninja” was attempting to break into his work vehicle. Officers quickly located 20-year-old Christopher Brimm nearby. Police say he was easily identifiable, as he was wearing all black clothing with a balaclava covering his head and face, gloves, and carrying a duffle bag with a headlamp style flashlight and large knives and a machete. Brimm stated he was homeless and sometimes “explored” homes he believed to be abandoned. He was charged with attempted auto burglary and possession of burglary tools after his bag contained various tools including picking tools, a Dremel, and pliers. A commissioner set his bond at $2,000.
