Metro Nashville Police met 19-year-old Gabriel Ryan Tyson in downtown Nashville in January during a routine check of street vendor licenses. They noticed he was dancing around on the sidewalk and drinking from an open bottle of Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling. They issued him a citation for vending without a license, he poured out the open container of wine, and everyone went about their night. Sometime later, the officers realized Tyson was only 19-years-old, and three days after the citation, Officer Shawn Kaelin swore out the pettiest warrants of his career, charging the teen with underage drinking and underage possession of alcohol.
Gabriel Ryan Tyson was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 11th, charged with both possession and consumption of alcohol while under the age of 21. A commissioner set his bond at $1,000 and he was given pre-trial release to his 1015 W. Kirkland Ave address in Nashville.
