A 31-year-old Murfreesboro man was arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct Sunday, April 21 after a security guard at Stones River Mall called police.
The suspect was accused of “attempting to fight strangers in the parking lot” outside Sam’s All American Sports Grill, according to an arrest report filed by Murfreesboro Police Officer Zachary Ferrell.
When Ferrell arrived the suspect fled from the security guard, but the officer quickly caught up to the man who allegedly smelled strongly of alcohol and was unsteady on his feet.
He had injuries to his feet and elbows, which resulted from running from security, according to witnesses.
According to the suspect, the injuries came when “someone knocked him out and that a finger went inside his rectum,” Ferrell reported. But witnesses said no one assaulted the suspect.
He was then transported to MTMC where he “was belligerent and began cursing at the ER staff. (He) became hostile ... to the point that ER doctors refused to treat him,” Ferrell said.
He was booked into the Adult Detention Center where he was held on a $750 bond.
PS. I could not stop laughing for about three days. This situation had to be one of my funniest moments at the Mall. The man kept pointing at me and shouting "stinky fingers".
