Police say 24-year-old Andrei Gavaz unzipped his pants and whipped out his most prized possession at Kid Rock’s Bar on Valentine’s Day. He then thoroughly touched himself and then, using that same hand, smacked the face of a bouncer who had escorted him out of the venue due to his level of intoxication. He was attempting to re-enter the bar when the assault occurred. The bouncer, Shay Thomas, fell to the ground and suffered cuts to both elbows and his knuckle while attempting to detain Gavaz.
Police arrived to find Gavaz cuffed, and as they were placing him in the rear of a patrol car, he had to be hobble-restrained as he attempted to kick Officer Hill in the face, but no contact was made. He was still charged with assault of an officer, as Officer Hill stated he “felt as if he was about to be assaulted.” He then began to spit all over the rear of the patrol vehicle, resulting in an additional vandalism charge.

Metro Nashville Police say 30-year-old Jonathan Cordon, of La Vergne, was unable to pay his $508.53 bar tab at Kid Rock’s Bar on Broadway in downtown Nashville Thursday morning. Police initially responded to the venue after Cordon continued to re-enter the bar after being removed by security staff for fighting other patrons. He kept sneaking in through a window and was removed twice already when police came to assist. They observed him being belligerent and extremely intoxicated. As they placed him in the patrol car to be transported to booking, bar staff alerted officers the credit card was declined. Cordon said he had no other way to pay the bill, and Kid Rock’s bar wished to prosecute for the unpaid tab.
