According to the scanner traffic, this was the third time police had been in contact with the man that night, and he had previously refused medical attention both times. Then when police encountered the man again, he removed his colostomy bag and began swinging it at the responding officers.
The poo-flinging man was eventually arrested (thoughts and prayers for the poor officer who had to transport him to the clink) and at least one officer was temporarily out of service after having to run home to make a wardrobe change.
Metro Nashville Police would later identify the man as Nicholas Newhart, though he was initially referred to as “John Doe” in court documents.
According to the police report, security at Kid Rock’s flagged down police after Newhart was drunk and blocking the outside emergency exit at the bar. Security told the police that the man was drunk and refusing to leave after being asked to move along.
Then when police arrived, that’s when Newhart removed his colostomy bag from the front of his pants and began swinging it around, hitting two officers with his feces.
Newhart already had a lengthy criminal history, but thanks to his shit-stirring…er, swinging, he was charged with assault on the Metro police officers, disorderly conduct (that’s putting it mildly), and public intoxication. He would plead guilty to two counts of assault on a police officer just a few days later, and was ultimately sentenced to 6 months in jail for his shitty behavior.
I mean, can you imagine being out for a night of partying and literal feces starts flying at you on the sidewalk? There’s just no coming back from that. Call it a night. Call it a weekend. Call it a year. But you’ve gotta call it at that point. It’s over.
I didn’t think there was anything worse than the “woo girls” downtown, but the “poo guy” definitely takes the cake.
