Metro Nashville Police say 30-year-old Jonathan Cordon, of La Vergne, was unable to pay his $508.53 bar tab at Kid Rock’s Bar on Broadway in downtown Nashville Thursday morning. Police initially responded to the venue after Cordon continued to re-enter the bar after being removed by security staff for fighting other patrons. He kept sneaking in through a window and was removed twice already when police came to assist. They observed him being belligerent and extremely intoxicated. As they placed him in the patrol car to be transported to booking, bar staff alerted officers the credit card was declined. Cordon said he had no other way to pay the bill, and Kid Rock’s bar wished to prosecute for the unpaid tab.
32-year-old Alex Hernandez was attempting to drive his silver van out of the parking garage near 3rd Ave & Broadway in downtown Nashville when he suddenly stepped out of the driver’s side door while the van continued to roll onto 3rd Avenue with passengers inside. He chased the van to get it to stop, and hopped back into the driver’s seat, catching the eye of an officer who was stuck in traffic while responding to another nearby call. Hernandez admitted to having three beers prior to driving and “respectfully declined” to participate in field sobriety tests. All the passengers had also been drinking, so the officer drove the defendant’s vehicle back into the parking garage so it would be safely parked and not be towed. Hernandez was charged with DUI.
