Nashville, Tennessee (WKRN) – A 20-year-old man filed multiple charges after reporting that metro police had assaulted and pointed a finger gun at a police officer while walking on Interstate 65 on Sunday. Facing

Metro police responded to I-65 Mile Marker 91, depending on pedestrians seen walking south along the median. According to the affidavit, police officers sought to attract the attention of men by activating car sirens and emergency blue lights.

According to the document, defendant Joshua Davis ignored the request and began pointing his finger at police and other traffic. Davis then headed to the right shoulder of the Interstate, where police officers got out of the car and ordered Davis to stop walking, but he reportedly ignored the request.

Officers reported that Davis began to hide his hand. It led the officer to “actually” go and detain him. Officials said during the arrest Davis resisted, biting one of the police officers’ left forearms, grabbing another police officer’s watch, breaking the wristband and stripping it off.

Davis has been detained and detained in Metro Prison on charges of assault, vandalism, and avoidance of arrests by police officers.
