Happy Hour: Nothing But Trouble

  • We know it’s easy to get bored in Cookeville, but Channel 4 is reporting a string of arson incidents that have sent 6 port-o-johns up in flames. Kids these days. [WSMV]
  • Nashville Is Talking had us on the edge of our seats with a blow-by-blow account of a police chase down I-40 this morning. After speeding through Davidson and Wilson counties, they finally caught up with the guy, who had taken his girlfriend hostage and stabbed himself (he’s gonna be fine) when police got to the scene.

  • We’ll eventually lay this issue to rest, but it’s almost becoming comical: Ol’ Boots has been slapped with lawsuit number five today, this one coming from a national arena management firm that claims he cheated them out of $7M. [Tennessean]
  • The Metro Board of Education approved some new language to their contract that prevents them from discriminating against employees based on “sexual orientation, gender identity and creed,” making Nashville one of the only school systems in the state to adopt this kind of provision.
