With the nice weather (and by that I mean it was hot as hell and the humidity was so high that it was like walking into a sauna), no more COVID restrictions, and people taking their summer vacations, Broadway is as busy as it’s ever been.
Add to that a rodeo taking place at Bridgestone Arena and the Nashville Opera hosting a performance of “Cinderella” at Ascend Amphitheater (because hey, we’re cultured here), and you’ve got a recipe for shit to pop off.
I even ventured down there myself for a couple of hours this weekend with some friends and man, it was as crazy as I’ve seen it in my 5 years in Nashville.
From fights to people passed out in bushes to 911 calls about cyber attacks, the police scanner was buzzing all weekend.
A few weeks ago we recapped the best of the scanner traffic from the first weekend that Nashville fully reopened, but it seems like the action isn’t slowing down so I figured, why not make this a recurring series.
With that, let’s get into the wild weekend.
People seemed to be on their best behavior heading into the weekend as things got off to a slow start on Friday. Until…
metro police unit needs an ambulance at 411 broadway, downtown sporting club, for a 40 year old female passed out in the bathroom; and now… it's the weekend… folks had been pretty restrained so far today…
Once people start passing out in the bathroom of the bar, it’s on.
Miranda Lambert’s new bar, Casa Rosa, quickly got in on the action with a fight that resulted in an arrest – and we were quickly marking off squares on the Broadway Bingo card.
and now a transport car needed quickly for an arrest, mentioned at whiskey bent, right next door… well with that we've popped Miranda's Broadway bingo cherry, and marked off another square in short order… pic.twitter.com/Ng0i3FY4m1
What are they putting in those margs at Casa Rosa?
Then we got one of the more interesting calls of the weekend: A woman calling police and rambling about cyber attacks in nearby Clarksville.
metro police have a 911 hang up call from Broadway place and rep john lewis way, female rambling on about cyber attacks in the Montgomery county Clarksville area, keeps hanging up, officers will check it out…
Police were never able to locate the caller – but with all the cyber attacks going on lately, maybe she knew something we don’t?
Next we ventured a little off Broadway to the Hampton Social, a restaurant downtown popular with bachelorette parties for its giant “Rosé all day” sign in the lobby that’s a popular spot for group Instagram pics.
As if things weren’t already wild enough, next up was a fight at Tootsie’s that broke a window out of the front of the bar.
units need a transport car for an arrest, all are currently busy, checking to see if central has a car that can help; and with that fight we can mark off tootsie's orchid lounge for another square on broadway bingo… pic.twitter.com/yP3UOVPK7g
If I could sum up Nashville in one tweet, it would be that one.
We then got our second knife call of the evening.
general broadcast to downtown units, central running emergency to Hampton Inn & Suites Nashville-Downtown, 4th Avenue South, Nashville, TN, report of a person with a kitchen knife walking up and down the street
