Metropolitan Nashville Police were called to the Lowes Vanderbilt Hotel on Sunday in response to a call reporting that a fire alarm was pulled by an intoxicated man. They arrived on the scene, which led to the arrest of Shaun White, 26.
There was reportedly a bit of a struggle between White and the bystander who phoned the police about the incident. White was apparently trying to flee the scene of the crime, when the bystander stopped him from getting in the cab and called the Police. White then allegedly tried to run away on foot and when the bystander chased him, White ran into and fell backwards, leading him to hit his head on a nearby fence.
Shaun White, famous for winning gold medals in both the 2006 and 2010 Winter Olympics, and a fashion designer, has been charged with public intoxication and vandalism.
