Nashville Sheriff suspends all non-essential intakes into jail due to COVID outbreak

Effective Sunday, January 16, the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office, which operates the jail, will only accept admissions directly from “street arrests” as deemed necessary that can’t be resolved by a citation by the arresting agency. All intake services are suspended until further notice for federal sleepover inmates, those serving weekend time, “hold for court” only, prisoner transports, and any other “wait to report” type admissions. Direct arrests from the courts may still be accepted.

If you are scheduled to serve weekend time please call 615-862-8367 to reschedule. NOTE: Citation booking & release is not impacted, as this is a function of the courts, which are still continuing operation at this time. 42% of the current 1,614 inmates are either a confirmed positive COVID case or awaiting confirmation of a test result.

Tourist attempts to use debit card as a phone to call a friend — Camron Siener too drunk for Nashville

Metro Nashville Police arrived at the Kimpton Aertson Hotel in downtown Nashville to find 27-year-old Camron Siener unconscious on the couch in the lobby. Once he was awakened, he admitted to not being a guest at this specific hotel, and repeatedly stated he was actually staying at “12 and Myself”. Officers escorted him off the property at the request of the hotel and attempted to direct him to an Uber to get to his correct hotel. A few moments later, Siener returned back inside the lobby claiming he was, in fact, staying here, and gave them names of several friends who were also registered at the location. The front desk confirmed that neither he, nor any of his friends, were registered at this hotel. Police asked him one last time to contact someone to come get him. Siener then pulled out a debit card and began to use it as a cell phone, in an apparent attempt to phone a friend. Officers eventually determined he was too intoxicated for his own safety and transported him to booking, where he was charged with public intoxication.
