36-year-old Philadelphia tourist James Payton was found “extremely intoxicated” and attempting to fight staff at the Moxy in downtown Nashville in the early hours of Saturday morning. He was immediately irritated with the arrival of officers and stated they should “walk away from him, right now!”. Despite attempts to get him to his room, he stated he wasn’t going anywhere. Officers understood the assignment and took Payton into custody, charging him with public intoxication and disorderly conduct. He is free on pre-trial release.
52-year-old Jeffrey Kaply told Nashville Police his name was “Captain Morgan” after being found heavily intoxicated on the 6th floor of the Moxy Hotel in downtown Nashville. Just prior to their arrival, he was seen by hotel staff with his pants down in the corner of the ironing room while urinating on the floor. He admitted to having “a lot” to drink. #VisitMusicCity
