TWRA Officer Joshua Landrum was patrolling Percy Priest Lake Sunday when he noticed a pontoon boat in the ‘no wake’ zone without any registration numbers properly displayed. As he encountered and spoke to the boat operator, 31-year-old Tyler Ruby, he noticed he reeked of alcohol and had slurred speech and glassy eyes. Ruby admitted to drinking “2 or 3 beers” and smoking marijuana prior to operating the boat. After performing poorly on field sobriety tests, Ruby was transported to booking on multiple charges.
Officers working the downtown entertainment district initiative say 21-year-old Lucas Beard, from San Francisco, was kicked out of the Nashville Underground on Broadway after being asked to leave on his own multiple times. Beard then scaled a neighboring building and jumped back onto the property in order to re-gain entry. Police say he was intoxicated and causing a disturbance.
