NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A public intoxication charge against real estate developer David Chase has been dismissed, according to his attorney.

Chase was arrested at 1214 Demonbreun Street Friday, where the Deja Vu strip club is located, according to an arrest affidavit filed in Davidson County.

The report states that officers were called to the scene by an employee of the business to an area in the parking lot where a group of people were congregating.

When they encountered Chase, officers noted that he had a heavy odor of alcohol, red watery eyes, was unsteady on his feet and was refusing to leave the property.

Metro officers asked him to leave the property three times and he refused, according to the affadavit.

He reportedly turned to walk away from officers and they stated that due to his level of intoxication he could “not take reasonable care of himself as he had not summoned transportation off of the property.”

Chase’s attorney, Grover Collins, told News 2 the charge was dismissed after Noon Friday.

In 2014, Chase was the Vice President of D.F. Chase, one of the largest construction firms in Tennessee, when he was arrested for domestic violence twice in two days.

The victim claimed Chase dragged her out of his apartment by her ponytail in one of the two incidents.

Those charges were dropped in July 2015.

In June 2016, a 2014 DUI charge Chase faced was dismissed with prejudice, which meant it could not be brought back to court again.
