Police say 67-year-old Mark McCormack could not stand up on his own and had to be propped up by officers during questioning after he crashed his car into a tree Thursday evening in West Nashville. He refused all medical treatment and sobriety testing but did admit to drinking “five large mixed drinks” prior to driving. A search of his vehicle revealed an open bottle of Skol vodka, partially consumed. McCormack was previously convicted of a DUI in 2017 in Dickson County.

Metro Nashville Police had just chased Jack Beckham down Broadway late Saturday night and were placing him under arrest when 35-year-old Alison Krawczyk approached the takedown and repeatedly placed herself between the officers and Beckham. Officer Begley commanded that she step back and stay back, and she refused and continued to interfere with Beckham’s arrest. Due to her extreme level of intoxication and causing a disturbance, she was also taken into custody.
Metro Nashville Police & fire responded to I-40 East near White Bridge Pike in the early hours of Monday morning and pulled 30-year-old Nashville Musician Franklin “Trey” Calloway out of his Ford F-150, which he crashed. Multiple Nashville Firefighters say Calloway told them he had been drinking, and police say he reeked of alcohol upon contact. As he tried to stand on his own, officers had to catch him several times as he attempted to topple over. He motioned he “wasn’t sure” when asked how much alcohol he had consumed, and after the first two field sobriety tests, Calloway stated, “I know I’ve failed the tests already; why are you embarrassing me?” and refused all other tests.
26-year-old Matthew Bain was inside his room at the Super 8 on Bell Road on Christmas Day when he called police to report that someone was sawing his door off the hinges. Officers responded to find no signs of any forced entry or foul play at the location. Bain then told officers how “Lit” he was, but was sad that he flushed the remainder of his drugs down the toilet when he believed someone was cutting off the things to come into his hotel room. With no drugs and no crime, officers cleared the parking lot and scene.
As they were preparing to leave, Bain began running down the sidewalk and into the middle of the road to stop them from leaving. He wanted to again tell them how “LIT” he was while sweating profusely and blocking their patrol cars from moving. He revised to move out of the way, so he was taken to jail and charged with public intoxication. His case was dismissed after the standard 8-hour hold.
