Metro Nashville Police encountered 45-year-old Brian Mayers of Georgia at 3rd & Broadway after he had just been involved in a fight with multiple other individuals. None of the other individuals wish to prosecute for the assault. While speaking to Mayers, officers noticed his level of intoxication and his inability to care for himself. He was taken into custody for public intoxication. During a search incident to arrest, a loaded Springfield Armory 9mm handgun was located in his waistband.
23-year-old Joshua Berrios was very drunk and disorderly outside Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa late Friday night. Metro Nashville Police officers working the Entertainment District Initiative say he was instead and reeked of alcohol. He was unable to care for himself and was taken into custody and charged with public intoxication.
Bar staff at Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse were attempting to remove 25-year-old Annaliese Noel Mickelson from their establishment Friday night, and she refused to leave after multiple requests.

42-year-old Robert Brodie was found stumbling along the roadway in downtown Nashville Tuesday evening as officers stopped to check on his welfare. Police say it was immediately obvious he was under the influence of a controlled substance and was unable to care for himself. As he was being taken into custody for public intoxication for his own safety, officers located 3.3 grams in total of multiple small packages of crystal methamphetamine, along with $328 in cash. While at booking, he exclaimed that he “didn’t understand why selling meth is a problem.” He repeatedly claimed not to have any more drugs on him; however, a search at booking revealed an additional 2 grams of meth inside his wallet.
58-year-old Ronald Hutt stopped by The Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville on several days this week, eating and drinking at the swanky bar, telling the staff to just charge it to his 5th-floor room each time. The scam *almost* worked out for him, however, on Wednesday hotel staff observed Hutt, who is unhoused, “making a mess” in one of the hotel’s public restrooms. At that point, his story was questioned, and he admitted that he was not a guest of the hotel, nor knew anyone there, and it was a con to eat and drink at the hotel bar. After a brief chase, hotel management stopped him on the sidewalk as he attempted to flee, and police arrived shortly after. In total, he charged $499.44 in food and beverages to a room without authorization.
Metro Nashville Police met 19-year-old Gabriel Ryan Tyson in downtown Nashville in January during a routine check of street vendor licenses. They noticed he was dancing around on the sidewalk and drinking from an open bottle of Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling. They issued him a citation for vending without a license, he poured out the open container of wine, and everyone went about their night. Sometime later, the officers realized Tyson was only 19-years-old, and three days after the citation, Officer Shawn Kaelin swore out the pettiest warrants of his career, charging the teen with underage drinking and underage possession of alcohol.
22-year-old Kimora Hamilton Abeln (wife of Daniel Abeln) was also arrested in Nashville this weekend after the couple got into an altercation with bouncers at a downtown Nashville bar on Broadway. After police arrested her husband, she was found to be too intoxicated to care for herself and to also be causing an unwanted disturbance.
She is charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct, and is free on pre-trial release.
24-year-old Jared Beard was found asleep behind the wheel of his car at an intersection just south of downtown Nashville and admitted to drinking prior to driving. Police say he agreed to a breathalyzer, a demonstrated he could blow hard enough, however, when his lips met the actual machine, he wouldn’t blow hard enough for it to register. He also urinated on himself multiple times while speaking to police, and in the back of a patrol car.
