Kid Rock‘s Honky Tonk Rock ‘N Roll Steakhouse in Nashville is a dicey place to be from an epidemiological standpoint under normal circumstances, least of all during a pandemic. But believe it or not, things got even dicier over the weekend. No need to deliberate too long, based on reputation alone, you can just use your gut. That’s what the guy who sprayed shit all over the place did. According to Newsweek, police were summoned to Kid Rock’s bar based on reports that a man was “allegedly tossing the contents of his used colostomy bag onto patrons.” I’ve heard of shitty reviews before, but this one was really on the nose(s).
Kid Rock’s Dookie Kak Poop ‘N Hurl Shithouse was last in the news last summer when the bar’s co-owner joined a lawsuit against state and local authorities over COVID-19 restrictions. At the time, bars in Nashville were only allowed to operate at 50% capacity, 75% in dining areas. Last summer! So the bar’s viral load was already through the roof, even before the shit hit the fan. Newsweek reports:
Social media users across platforms have gone wild over claims that a man was arrested outside of Kid Rock’s bar for allegedly tossing the contents of his used colostomy bag onto patrons.
Reports first surfaced of the wild events on Saturday evening. Twitter account @ScanNashville, which regularly reports on Tennessee police activity, received word that law enforcement had been called to Kid Rock’s Honky Tonk Rock ‘N Roll Steakhouse to handle a disruptive patron outside the establishment.
“Unit needs a transport car at…..drum roll…..kid rock, and an ambulance, and a [sergeant]…” Nashville Scanner began their Twitter thread.
“Male took off his colostomy bag and started swinging it at others, some units have feces on them,” the account wrote, noting that this was the “third time” that this offender had been flagged to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department in recent memory.
“Dispatch also advising central was out twice with this unit tonight, keeps refusing medical,” they added.
Nashville police confirmed that a John Doe was arrested for “causing a public disturbance with his colostomy bag.” Unfortunately, it sounds like the man may have been suffering from a mental health crisis and his actions were not specifically directed at Kid’s establishment or the responding officers. But I’ll not let such speculation take this poignant moment away from me.
“The defendant was outside drunk holding a bottle of beer blocking the outside emergency exit door at Kid Rock’s,” the affidavit obtained by Newsweek said. “Kid Rock security told the defendant to leave … but he refused.”
The affidavit alleged that once the Metropolitan Police tried to calm the man down at the scene, he escalated things: “When the Metro police officers arrived to the location to assist security the defendant took out his colostomy bag from the inside of his front pants area and started to swing the bag around from left to right hitting two of the Metro police officers with his feces.”
“Some units and patrons have been assaulted with feces, and at least one officer has left work to change clothes,” the page added.
A TikTok user reports that there was an extra big crowd there that night because the bar was celebrating the mask mandate being lifted. But I would put good money that there were one or two patrons there that night who found themselves weighing the pros and cons of gargling bleach, that wish they had worn one anyway.
