The Metro Council voted this week to pay $236,000 to a man who was wrongfully arrested in 2019 by the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.

In November 2019, MNPD officers were surveilling a murder suspect at a hotel. They observed a suspicious vehicle and began to follow it. When the vehicle started speeding, officers tried to initiate a traffic stop, but the car sped away from Interstate 65 North to Briley Parkway East.
