31-year-old Mikael Resean Freeman was charged with criminal impersonation and public intoxication when he could not provide a valid name to the police after telling them he was drinking with 2 others on a boat all day.
On August 16, Mount Juliet Police Officer Clayton Neal responded to a fight in progress at the Cedar Creek Marina on 9120 Saudersville Road. The officer spoke with Tevin Vaughn, Vinciana Reeder, and Mikael Resean Freeman. All three smelled of intoxicants on their breath and person and Vinciana had blood on her. Freeman advised that Tevin and Vinciana are in a relationship, had been drinking on a boat all day and arguing with each other. Vinciana advised police that she had injured her toe, but that no assault occurred.
Due to Freeman’s level of impairment, Officer Neal deemed him to be a danger to his own safety as well as that of the public and detained him for public intoxication. When Officer Neal requested Mr. Freeman’s name he initially provided the name Sean Freeman then Resean Freeman but neither name could be found. He was asked to provide his middle name. Mr. Freeman told the officer that he did not have a middle name. Officer Neal was not able to verify his identity until his legal name was revealed to be Mikael Resean Freeman during the booking process.
Mikael Resean Freeman was charged with criminal impersonation and public intoxication but was later released on his own recognizance.
