22-year-old Elizabeth Bibb is charged with DUI with a child after a November crash on I-40. Officers arrived to find Bibb and her four-year-old daughter in the Ford Fusion. Bibb was visibly intoxicated and unsteady on her feet as she was taken to an ambulance to be transported to a local hospital. Her stepfather advised he believed she had been drinking earlier in the day, and she confirmed she used both Xanax and alcohol. She reportedly told a doctor at the hospital she “got too drunk,” which was relayed to police. Due to her being admitted to the hospital, she was issued a state citation, which she was booked on this week.
45-year-old David Gandy is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after police say he stabbed his roommate, Derek Walsh, in the chest with a knife. The victim says he was grieving over another roommate who had just died and was drinking and became increasingly upset as the night progressed. He stated he was also upset because Gandy had a drug dealer at the shared home after another roommate just died. The victim admits to busting down Gandy’s bedroom door and having a verbal argument over drug use. The victim says he then left the room and realized he had been stabbed. He says he never saw the object he was stabbed with but did hear Gandy say he was going to cut him. Gandy claims he held a pocket knife up when Walsh charged at him, and he “stabbed himself.”
41-year-old Tony A. Gainous is charged with public intoxication and criminal trespass after his behavior at a Vanderbilt Football game last week. Vanderbilt Police initially responded to an individual, identified as Gainous, who was sitting in the wrong section. It was soon discovered he did not have a ticket to the game and was escorted outside the gates. A short time later, he jumped the gate and drunkenly ran onto the football field, stumbling and falling. He was issued a criminal trespass warning and again escorted from the property. Still not deterred, Gainous then jumped Gate 2 to get into the stadium. Tired of dealing with his antics, Vanderbilt police took him into custody and transported him to booking downtown.
Officers were on Percy Drive on another unrelated call when they came in contact with 36-year-old Vitalina Yegorov Holder, who was standing beside her Silver Mercedes, which was parked with the engine running. Officers immediately noticed her slurred speech and the smell of alcohol. She admitted to drinking “two White Claws” prior to driving. She was reportedly so intoxicated that field sobriety tests had to be stopped for her own safety. Inside her car was an opened case of White Claw seltzer drinks with two open cans nearby. She would later blow a 0.147% BAC on a breathalyzer, as she found out there are, in fact, still laws when drinking Claws — something she should have known, as she’s married to local attorney Chris Holder.
Orlando Hughes, the owner of Music City Protection, says he took 18-year-old Roy Davis into custody and detained him at Ezell Harding Christian School for “stealing packages” and even posted his photo on social media before detaining him in his vehicle while he waited for Metro Nashville Police to arrive. The teenager was unarmed when he was put into the vehicle to stay warm, and after two hours, Hughes was preparing to release Davis, as MNPD still had not responded to the scene, and he was no longer able to wait. He took Davis out of the vehicle and realized he was in possession of Hughes’ Glock 43x handgun, which had been stored in the glove compartment. Huges told the actual police officer that Davis “must have taken it when I wasn’t looking.” Hughes is a licensed armed security guard and a state-certified trainer. Davis was charged with theft of a firearm.
46-year-old Marina Portillo says she came home Thursday evening to find her husband, Dr. David Patzer, at the rear of their home with another woman, Tia Bryan. As Dr. Patzer told his wife he was leaving the house with Tia, Marina charged him and punched him in the chest and face. Responding officers documented bruising on his eye, broken glasses, a bloodied nose, and a cut on his chest.
Marina Portillo is the founder and director of Ithaca Montessori school in Nashville. Dr. David Patzer is the Medical Director of Addiction Services at Nashville’s Mental Health Cooperative.
31-year-old Rebekah Nicole Dearmond lost her bag at the Nashville International Airport and sought assistance from a Spirit Airlines agent. The two then approached an Airport Police Officer for further assistance. The officer noted Dearmond was visibly intoxicated and acting out during the search for her bag. The bag was eventually located, and Dearmond was asked about her plans for leaving the airport in her intoxicated state. She refused to contact anyone to pick her up and stated she didn’t have money for a cab or hotel room. As she continued to be argumentative and call the officer derogatory names in a loud voice, she was taken into custody for public intoxication and transported to the Metro Nashville Jail.
Metro Nashville Police say 27-year-old Nicholas Daniels took Ecstasy on November 29th before moving the furniture around in the lobby to “build a fort” in the Marq Music Row apartments on Division Street. After the fort was built, he discharged a fire extinguisher on the floor “to fight some demons,” he later explained. He repeatedly explained to the officers he was talking to CNN & BBC as he looked into their body-worn cameras. Daniels was taken into custody for his own safety and charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
