A Nashville man with a "chronic booking history” was jailed overnight Wednesday, marking his 539th arrest in the Music City.

According to an affidavit from Metro Nashville Police, most of Robert Brown's arrests were petty misdemeanor charges, like the latest one for criminal trespassing and public intoxication.

He was arrested Wednesday at an Exxon station on Rosa Parks Boulevard for allegedly refusing to leave and arguing with an employee.

Police arrived and noted that he was "intoxicated to a point that he was a danger to himself and others."

The 48-year-old man has arrests dating back to 1994, when he was 25-years-old. He's scheduled to be in court Thursday morning.
