Nashville man arrested nearly 100 times in less than a year

Thomas Harrell-873703986

A 43-year-old man arrested a total of 98 times in the past 11 months has been booked into the Metro jail again on multiple charges.

Thomas Harrell was charged Thursday morning with aggravated criminal trespassing, theft, public intoxication and resisting arrest.

Metro police were called to a theft at the Exxon Tiger Market on Broadway where they observed Harrell “being aggressive toward the store clerk and threatening him,” an arrest affidavit states.

The suspect was told to put his hand behind his back, as he was being placed under arrest, but police said he pulled away and resisted being placed in handcuffs.

Officers advised Harrell smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot watery eyes and slurred speech.

Surveillance video showed the suspect place two, 24 oz. cans of beer into a bag and attempt to leave the store when he was stopped by the clerk at the front exit, detectives said.

He was previously arrested Wednesday morning on a charge of theft. He was taken into custody Monday on the same charge.

The Davidson County Criminal Court Clerk’s online database shows a majority of Harrell’s charges over the past year have been “dismissed at the request of the state.”
