A Tennessee man was arrested Friday night as Nashville Metro Police enforced a mask mandate.
Police reported having issued 16 citations for mask violations in the city Friday evening. One man was arrested after running from officers attempting to give him such a citation.
In August, the city of Nashville made headlines after police arrested a 61 year old homeless man for not wearing a mask.
The same month, a Metro Nashville At-Large Council Member suggested during a health committee meeting that maskless individuals should be charged with murder.
Last month, The National File reported that a woman sporting a Trump shirt was arrested for being maskless, while surrounded by others also not complying with the mandate.
