Just the charges from the police report but FUCK.
Scoop Nashville: 46-year-old former hockey star Matthew Barnaby was booked into the Metro Nashville jail at 1 a.m. Thursday, charged with choking a bouncer at Nashville Crossroads bar on Broadway in downtown Nashville.
Metro Nashville Police were dispatched to 419 Broadway in the early hours of Thursday morning in response to an intoxicated individual. Once on scene, security from the venue advised that an altercation broke out between Matthew Barnaby, his girlfriend, and other patrons of the bar.
A bouncer at the location, Tyler P. Hardy, says he was choked by Barnaby during the altercation and wanted to prosecute. Matthew Barnaby was taken into custody and charged with assault and public intoxication. He is free on pre-trial release and scheduled to appear in court later this month.
We started getting calls from Nashville news outlets this morning and I’m not going to sewer, my friend.
I love Matthew but he’s a wildcard and I have to think there’s some serious soul searching going on right now.
I’ve only been around Matthew sober. I love the guy but he had some issues a few months ago, so we parted ways.
He’s a father and a friend to many. Pray for the cat before you judge him, and remember there’s more to a story than police reports.
