Noah Nicholas: armed and intoxicated in downtown Nashville
On September 27th, Officers responded to a person with a weapon call on 7th and Broadway. 40-year-old Noah Nicholas’s description was put out as a BOLO and was identified by an off-duty Officer. A fully loaded Smith and Wesson with one in the chamber was found on Nicholas’s person when he was frisked by Officers. Paul Siegel told Officers that he was working security when Nicholas came from behind him and reached for Siegel’s weapon. Siegel turned around to confront Nicholas, and then Nicholas lifted his shirt, showing his holstered weapon, stating, “I got one too.” He proceeded to point his fingers at Siegel as if it were a gun. Siegel stated that he felt as if Nicholas was going to use a weapon against him. When Officers arrived, Nicholas was being aggressive and threatening them. They observed Nicholas to be visibly impaired.
