Metro Nashville Police responded to a single-vehicle accident on I-40 where a Kia Sportage driven by 25-year-old Michael Collier impacted a guardrail near the Central Pike ramp. First responders arrived to find Collier unresponsive behind the wheel. After finding a white powdery substance in the cup holder, two doses of Narcan were administered with no impact on his level of responsiveness throughout the emergency transport. As the ambulance arrived at the hospital bay, Collier suddenly eloped from the gurney and fled on foot for a short distance until stopped by officers and detained. He told officers he picked up a receipt from the cup holder and noticed the powder on his fingers and sniffed his fingers to see what it was on the receipt. Seconds after sniffing his fingers he says he blacked out and woke up in the back of the ambulance. We previously covered Collier when he assaulted his girlfriend with a hamburger from behind in 2021.
Late Friday night, 21-year-old Conor McNamara crashed his vehicle onto the sidewalk on 4th Ave South just near the Nashville City Cemetary. McNamara freely admitted he didn’t have a valid license to drive and that he consumed “one beer” about fifteen minutes prior to driving. Officers say he performed poorly on field sobriety tests and blew a 0.098% BAC on a breathalyzer.
Conor is the son of Sean McNamara, the owner of McNamara’s Irish Pub.
27-year-old Jonathan Ervin was charged with theft of merchandise and possession of meth and marijuana after he was caught stealing shirts from Walmart.
