Tin Roof 2 closed

The Franklin Police Department closed and padlocked The Tin Roof 2 bar in Cool Springs.

Pursuant to circuit court order, the Franklin Police Department closed and padlocked The Tin Roof 2 bar in Cool Springs on Wednesday. 

According to a news release issued by FPD, the closing was due to patronage at the business causing a drain on police resources. The department cited more than 70 incidents including 13 assaults, rape, public indecency, gun possession, theft and DUI from Jan. 1, 2020 through Sept. 30, 2020.

In the FPD news release, the city of Franklin alleged Tin Roof 2 is a public nuisance and has been granted a writ of temporary injunction abating a nuisance, padlocking premises and allowing the search of the premises. The order prohibits anyone, including the establishment’s owners, from entering the premises pending an Oct. 12, 2020 court date.

The Franklin Police Department, city officials and district attorney’s office consider the padlocking of a business a last resort when a business blatantly promotes behavior that jeopardizes the safety of citizens and community.
