Metro Nashville Police say 32-year-old Samuel Blackwell drank approximately 9 Jack & Coke drinks at the Kelsey Dixon Comedy Night at Twin Kegs 2 late Thursday. After the show, he was traveling home on I-40 with his girlfriend, Brayden Ezell, driving. She says he became “irrationally upset” with her, and she stopped the vehicle in the middle of a lane of traffic on the interstate. Blackwell exited the vehicle and began running away from the vehicle, which is when officers arrived to find him running down a lane of travel in the direction of the next exit. Blackwell was detained and determined to be extremely intoxicated. He was transported to booking and charged with public intoxication.
Metro Nashville Police responded to a report of a fight at Twin Kegs II near downtown Nashville and found 26-year-old Milos Petkovic across the street shirtless and with scrapes and cuts on his body. He reeked of alcohol and was slurring his speech. He stated he consumed two shots of Maker’s Mark and a Guinness beer at the bar. No one wanted to press assault charges, so officers offered to help him find a ride home due to his level of intoxication; however, Petkovic insisted he was not drunk and accused officers of having no dignity, no respect, and of insulting his family’s honor. He refused all offers of assistance to avoid jail and was eventually transported to booking.
