(MURFREESBORO) Shortly after the 3AM hour on Friday morning, Murfreesboro Police were called to West Castle Street near Old Salem Road in reference to a physical fight. Evidently, two men got into a heated scuffle and a female tried to intervene, receiving scrapes and possible bruises. When officers arrived on the scene one of the males who was allegedly tied to the fight, took off on foot – running towards SE Broad Street.

The man was later located inside the Murfreesboro Parking Garage under the Murfreesboro City Hall and Library. According to MPD Public Information Officer Larry Flowers, “He refused officers commands at first, but eventually was detained.  He was taken to the hospital for a medical and mental evaluation. The man was confirmed to be a missing/suicidal subject out of Metro Nashville.”
