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.

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.

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.
