Metro Nashville Police responded to Rippy’s on Broadway in downtown Nashville on Saturday in response to 41-year-old Matthew Charboneau yelling and causing a scene with patrons on the sidewalk. Officer Kevin Clausius attempted to de-escalate the situation, however, Charboneau came at him aggressively and the two fought. Police say that during the fight, Charboneau broke the officer’s left ankle. Once he was cuffed, Charboneau then attempted to headbutt Officer Erickson. The officer was transported to Vanderbilt for his broken ankle.
Metro Nashville Police officers working the Entertainment District Enforcement Initiative this weekend encountered 35-year-old Paul Tirado outside the Lucky Bastard Saloon, barely able to stand on his own and causing an extreme disturbance to those around him. He was asked to leave multiples times and refused. Unable to locate anyone to care for him, he was charged with public intoxication and transported to booking.
32-year-old Miles McClain told police he had not consumed any alcohol when they asked him during a traffic stop after they observed his vehicle swerving and driving in the bicycle lanes in East Nashville. Despite his assertion, he would later blow a 0.154% BAC on a breathalyzer, nearly double the legal limit in Tennessee.
54-year-old Timothy Odom went to an East Nashville restaurant Wednesday and drank “a lot” of beer and snorted cocaine. He then convinced employees to call 911 for him, stating he was experiencing an emergency. Once officers arrived he explained he had stubbed his toe, and his phone wasn’t charged, both of which he believed to be genuine emergencies. He told officers what he really needed was for them to call a tow truck for him, so he could get home. Mr. Odom arrived on foot and did not have a vehicle.
Odom was charged with making a non-emergency 911 call ($50 bond), drug paraphernalia for the cut straws in his backpack ($1,000 bond), and public intoxication ($50 bond). He is jailed in lieu of a $1,100 bond.
