Metro Nashville Police Officer Donald Ray Davidson was on whistle duty Thursday night, when he blew his whistle at a downtown pedestrian who ignored him and crossed the empty street, laughing at the officer. The cop then grabs the man’s backpack strap, pulls him back to the patrol car, where he and 2 other offices used force to handcuff him for ‘refusal to comply with an order’. DA says not so fast, dismisses everything immediately at court.
#MNPD Officer Blake Lutz (who once claimed to smell factory sealed THC Gummy Bears from outside a vehicle) has done it again. On Thursday, he physically arrested a 24-year-old for possession of a 0.5 gram partially smoked joint, after seeing ‘significant smoke’ coming from the parked vehicle. Caleb Brown remains jailed, unable to post his $2,000 bond.
