Terrible news out of downtown Nashville this morning.

A man has died after police say he became unruly and had to be restrained by security at the rooftop bar of Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, located at the corner of 4th Avenue South on Nashville’s famous lower Broadway.

According to Metro Nashville Police, the as-of-yet unidentified man began fighting with security after being asked to leave the bar around 11 PM on Monday night. Several bouncers restrained the man until police arrived on the scene, but when officers arrived the man was unresponsive.

Video shared to Twitter showed emergency personnel performing CPR on an individual in the back of an ambulance, and traffic from the police scanner advised the hospital that the man under “trauma arrest” may have had a weapon.

According to News 2, a witness named Marc Alperen recalled what he saw:

“We were up there on the third floor, we were sitting on the balcony. We were just outside to get some air and next thing you know, we see like five ambulances, a bunch of fire trucks, cops.

We saw some guy come out on a stretcher and they were pumping him, giving him CPR on his way out of the bar.”

The man was transported to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

According to Metro Nashville Police, the death is being investigated as a homicide. As of right now no arrests have been made, and it’s unclear whether anyone involved will face any charges.

Of course there are all kinds of rumors flying around the internet, but this is all we know so far.

And whatever the facts turn out to be, it’s tragic that somebody lost their life somewhere that people just go to have a good time.
