24-year-old Emmanuel Nash was booked this week after failing to self-book for an assault citation in January. The citation alleges he was riding a WeGo Transit bus and began to curse at a WeGo employee, who promptly advised him he was barred from riding any WeGo bus the remainder of the day. As Nash exited the bus, he reportedly slapped the employee’s hand. The employee noticed two MNPD officers nearby and wanted to prosecute for the assault.

A Metro Nashville WeGo Public Transit bus crashed into 77-year-old Bennie Lee’s vehicle on May 4th. Metro Nashville Police arrived at the scene, they demanded his vehicle be immediately towed due to the location and rush hour traffic. They said the vehicle would have to be towed to the city-partnered tow lot, and told him the costs he would be charged, however, Bennie Lee refused and insisted his vehicle would only be towed to his home, but that shouldn’t have to pay for it, as the city bus struck him. He then stood near the vehicle and blocked the way of the tow truck that the city had dispatched to remove the vehicle from the roadway. Officers contacted public works, who declined to assist in changing the tire so it could maybe just be driven away, stating the location was too dangerous. Police eventually arrested the man and charged him with disorderly conduct so they could tow the car off the roadway.
