At 3:30 Tuesday afternoon Franklin Police Officers were summoned to a Cool Springs restaurant where a man was creating a disturbance inside. Arriving officers encountered the suspect, David Brown, in the parking lot and placed him under arrest. During the arrest, Brown resisted officers, threatening to kill them. While officers were walking him to their car, Brown unexpectedly jumped onto the hood of a squad car and began spitting in officers’ faces.
