Bouncers say 25-year-old Ryan Whalen started a fight at Jason Aldean’s Bar on Broadway in downtown Nashville on Saturday night which resulted in a man’s ankle being broken. His brother, Brendan Whalen, was also involved in that fight. The two were removed from the bar and told not to return. Security Manager Joshua Lynch says a few hours later the brothers, who were visiting from New York, returned to the bar and Ryan once again started another fight. They were both detained by security and charged with criminal trespass.
Ryan Whalen, of Jennifer Drive in Plattsburgh, NY, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on June 10th, charged with criminal trespass. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $1,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
