NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police received nearly 62% more calls to Broadway this past weekend compared to the weekend before, but the two prior to that were fairly comparable.

May 14 began the first weekend in more than a year that the city of Nashville had neither capacity restrictions nor a mask mandate in place.

Despite larger crowds on Broadway, few major incidents were reported, including a man accused of beating a sexual battery suspect unconscious near Fourth Avenue.

Data provided to News 2 by Metro police revealed there were a total of 192 “calls for service” on Lower Broadway from Friday, May 14 through Sunday, May 16 compared to 118 calls from Friday, May 7 through Sunday, May 9, an increase of approximately 61.5% from week to week.

The same data, though, shows there were 180 “calls for service” from Friday, April 30 through Sunday, May 2 and 177 calls from Friday, April 23 through Sunday, April 25, which is not too far off from this past weekend’s police activity.
