In Nashville, Tennessee Wildlife Resource Boating Officer Joshua Landrum says he noticed a pontoon boat traveling across Percy Priest Lake at 2-3 mph Saturday with no one at the steering wheel. He noticed the two occupants of the boat were seated at the very front of the pontoon boat talking, and 48-year-old Millard Ernest Byrd only returned to the driver’s console after the blue lights were activated on the TWRA boat, at which time he put the throttle in neutral and turned off the ignition. Landrum says the boat operator was obviously intoxicated, and when asked to put on a life jacket, he kept trying to put on a woman’s life jacket, which was much smaller and would not fit him. After performing poorly on field sobriety tests, he was taken into custody on multiple charges.
25-year-old Andreotti Cole was charged with evading arrest, as well as theft of property and 23-year-old Derrick Stovall was charged with two counts of evading arrest, theft of property, and possession of cocaine after officers spotted them in a stolen vehicle then found cocaine during a search of the vehicle.
41-year-old Jerry Anderson was charged with aggravated rape, aggravated assault, and domestic assault after strangling his wife until she passed out and forcing his penis into her mouth as she regained consciousness. Police found him at a middle Tennessee Bojangles with his partially-severed penis.
19-year-old Nadia Hardy was charged with theft of property and disorderly conduct when she and two accomplices, one of whom was a juvenile, were caught trying to lift merchandise and she caused a kerfuffle.
