43-year-old Austin Peay Art Professor Rickey Paul Bump was arrested in the early hours of December 9th at Mr. Billy’s Bar and Grill Public Intoxication.

When police spoke to Mr. Bump upon arrival, they reported “had a strong odor of alcohol about his person,” and when asked if he had anyone who could pick him up, he replied, “no.” The officer gave Mr. Bump multiple times to call someone to come pick him up so he wouldn’t drive home drunk. He refused. Clarksville police determined that Mr. Bump was under the influence of alcohol and a potential danger to himself and others, and he was taken into custody.
