, Nashville Tennessean

NASHVILLE —  Metro police on Monday arrested a Bellevue, Tennessee, man on public intoxication charges after he tipped servers $22,000 at a downtown hotel bar.

It all started when friends of Joel Boyers called police after they said they received strange texts from him about taking drugs that “increased his intelligence” and drinking while carrying a gun.

“He also made bizarre statements about giving away his child on Facebook,” according to his arrest affidavit.
