    A Lipscomb University employee is accused of touching several women inappropriately while intoxicated at the Tin Roof Bar on Demonbreun Street.

    Alex Ross, who currently works as the school's assistant director of operations in the athletics department, has been charged with public intoxication, according to a Metro Police affidavit.

    Tin Roof security told police that Ross was kicked out of the bar after three women complained that he had touched them inappropriately inside the bar.

    Police spotted Ross at the entrance of the bar, where he reportedly told security that he refused to leave after being escorted out of the building.

    Officers also asked Ross to leave the location and he refused, according to the affidavit.

    Police attempted to place Ross under arrest but he refused to give the officers his hands and pulled away.

    Officers had to forcefully gain control of the suspect before taking him into custody.

    Lipscomb University Assistant Vice President of Public Relations and Communications Kimberly Chaudoin released an official statement on behalf of the university regarding Ross' arrest.

    "Alex Ross is assistant director of operations in the athletics department, which means his primary job duties are to provide lawn maintenance for the grounds and fields, facilities maintenance, and setting up equipment for games. As this is an active case, we cannot comment on details of the incident. It is our policy for appropriate university officials to conduct an internal investigation and follow through as is consistent with internal policies," Chaudoin said.

    Ross also played baseball at Lipscomb University for one season in 2010 after transferring from Maple Woods Community College.

    Ross was released from Metro Jail on Sunday, online records show.
