38-year-old Kenneth Stripling is charged with public intoxication after employees say he sat at the counter for over an hour with food on his sleeves and had no idea what city he was in.
Lebanon Police say Kenneth Stripling was found intoxicated at the Highway 109 Waffle House in Lebanon. FTO Andy Byrnes responded to the call and made contact with Kenneth and found him to be unsteady on his feet, have red, watery eyes, and was slurring his speech. According to the Waffle House employees, Kenneth had been there for well over an hour with food on his sleeves, and no idea where he was at.
When asked where he was Kenneth responded that he thought he was in Hendersonville or Gallatin. Kenneth also had no clue what day it was. Due to his level of intoxication, he was deemed a danger to himself and to the general public, taken into custody, and transported to booking.
Kenneth Stripling was arrested for public intoxication and later released on his own recognizance. He is scheduled to appear in court in March.
