According to Metro police records, Juan Brito, 42, was arrested for public intoxication by police after he was observed drinking a beer and then throwing the can onto Ellington Parkway. Brito was also found to have two small baggies of marijuana, which were hidden in a Bible that he was carrying.
While conducting the arrest, police were approached by 65-year-old Andy Davis who threatened to stab Brito for hiding marijuana in the Bible, according to the affidavit. Police determined Davis, who smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot/watery eyes and was unsteady on his feet, was intoxicated.
