Metro Nashville Police say 23-year-old Preston Blake Weatherby attempted to cut the line for the men’s restroom near section 321 at Nissan Stadium Saturday during the Titans playoff game. When another fan confronted him about it once they had been inside the restroom, he reportedly wiped his hands across the face of the other man in an attempt to escalate the situation.
Weatherby posted a $200 cash bond.
26-year-old Shabazz Mallison is jailed in lieu of a $72,000 bond after police had two interactions with him Wednesday. Officers first encountered him at a South Nashville 7-Eleven when he threatened to fight and kill the clerk. He was released from the scene after the clerk chose to not press charges.
One hour later, police were called to his home where they encountered him armed with a handgun on the front porch, yelling for cops to “shoot me! shoot me!” while waving the gun around. He had threatened a roommate, Shameka Watson, and another woman with a gun while pointing the laser sight at them. During the argument he reportedly also threw a Yankee candle at her, leaving wax on her face, and she used a chicken pan on him in self-defense.
Mallison is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, reckless endangerment/assault, and possession of a handgun under the influence.
27-year-old Calvin Woods Jr., who prefers to be known as ‘Big Geeche’, and has a recent release titled “Found Guilty”, is once again charged with assaulting a lover. In this most recent case, his girlfriend, Cayla Yates, called 911 to report he grabbed her by the throat with both hands as she attempted to stop him from taking a pair of AirPods, which he had bought for her, from her purse. She eventually grabbed a knife in what she describes as “self-defense”, and says he cut his own hand by grabbing it. Woods told police during an interview that he only pushed her away when she pulled a knife on him. He was determined to be the primary aggressor and was taken into custody. He is charged with aggravated assault/strangulation and is free on a $10,000 bond.
In 2018, Woods was charged with the assault of a former girlfriend after police documented laceration injuries of the female he wrestled to the ground and tossed her phone in a dumpster so she couldn’t call 911. DA Glenn Funk retired those charges, as long as he promised to not get in trouble again. A few months later, Woods was charged with dragging the same girlfriend across the floor by her hair in front of children, after he punched her in the face multiple times. Police also documented those injures, but DA Glenn Funk refused to move forward with the prosecution in July of this year when the girlfriend backed out of testifying, despite the already collected evidence.
23-year-old #BoosterClub member Orlexus Elliott is charged in the theft of $4,720 worth of Titans Jerseys from the pro shop on November 5th. Orlexus and another female, whose arrest is pending, entered the Titans Pro Shop at 1 Titans way earlier this month, grabbed all the jerseys they could, and fled the store, fleeing in a black Nissan Murano convertible. Nashville has a thriving underground of ‘boosters’ who steal racks of items from stores to sell online.
As soon as police initially interviewed Elliott about this theft, she removed the stolen items from her social media, where she had the jerseys listed for sale, and offered to arrange to have them returned. Police gave her time to do that, however, she never followed through. She was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail Thursday, charged with felony theft. She is free on a $2,500 bond.

His mother arrived at the home and scared him away from the premises, and warrants were issued for his arrest. He is free on an $18,000 bond.
Nashville police arrested 27-year-old Syrus Jenkins Monday morning, who they say was clearly under the influence of unknown substances, and 90 minutes later he was free on pre-trial release, skipping the standard hold for public intoxication arrests. 5 hours after his release, he entered a family’s attached garage and attempted to gain entry to their home via the inner door. They grabbed a machete and waited 18 minutes for MNPD to arrive.

3 weeks ago Marcel Winters was sentenced to 4 years in state prison for aggravated robbery, the judge suspended it and gave him probation instead. In the 21 days since, he’s committed at least 3 thefts, and is waking up in jail this morning.
Dwight Boshers was arrested again Friday, this time for violation of probation, and possession of meth. We had originally queued his story for publication back in September, but a very speedy court case resulted in a plea where the charge would be deferred and eligible to be expunged, if he stayed out of trouble. Since that didn’t happen, and he now has new charges, we’ll now publish them all. First the original charge, where he fails as a robber: on 09/09/17, on the 200 block of White Bridge Road, MNPD responded…
