Robert Victor "Vic" Lineweaver (born October 11, 1954 in San Diego, California) was a member of the Metropolitan Council of Nashville and Davidson County, representing the 35th district.[1]

Vic Lineweaver served as a city councilman from 1983 to 1989 and from 1995 to 2002,[1] after which he ran for juvenile court clerk and won with 33.7% of the vote in May 2002. Lineweaver had previously served as a juvenile court clerk in 1989, but lost the following election.[2] He served on the Codes, Fair, and Farmer's Market Committee; the Public Works Committee; the Traffic and Parking Committee; and the Transportation and Aviation Committee.[3] He is Vice President of Bellevue Patrol & Security, Inc. He graduated from Bellevue High School and attended Columbia College.[1]

Lineweaver refused to submit a comprehensive response to a performance audit of the city's Juvenile Justice Center, which gave the clerk's office flack for file mismanagement. In August 2007, he was arrested and taken to jail on contempt of court charges for failing to produce documents deemed critical to the functioning of the juvenile court system.[4][5]

He co-sponsored an amendment to the ordinance adopting the Capital Improvements Budget and Program of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County for fiscal year 1999-2000 that funded a new Bellevue Branch Regional Library to be built, at the cost of $5,000,000.[6] The amendment failed and the new branch library was not built.

In February 2015, Lineweaver announced he would campaign to return to the Metro Council.[7] In April 2015, Lineweaver was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and prescription medications.[8] In August 2015, Lineweaver lost his election bid, receiving 17% of the vote to finish third behind Dave Rosenberg, who secured 60% of the vote, and Lonnie Spivak, who earned 22% of the vote.
