This story is brought to you by Scoop: Nashville as part of the #bspotter / #VisitMusicCity series which features tourist and downtown-related arrests in Music City.
22-year-old Tyler Cobb, who police say is a member of ‘Street Kings 615’ crew, was seen with his wife at an illegal street racing gathering organized by the ‘NightRiders’ crew on May 20th close to the BNA Airport. Police described him as a “slider” and said he is known as a street racer; he even once used a U-Haul truck to slide in. Tyler is also known to be an event organizer and was seen participating in the event with his wife, Destiny Hollis-Cobb. The event was at Airpark Center Drive East, where individuals stood in close proximity while Tyler was observed “sliding” at high rates of speed. The officer reported that the culture of these events is the bystanders are to “get back or get smacked,” placing them in immediate danger. Also, if the vehicles lost control of the vehicles at their high rates of speed in the crowd’s proximity, it could cause serious bodily injury or death. Due to the large gathering of people all participating in criminal offenses, the actions are constituted as “riots,” and that’s what Cobb was charged with. A multitude of warrants for those participating in the May meetup were issued on August 3, and Cobb was booked on his outstanding warrant on August 10.
Tyler James Cobb was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on August 10th, charged with riot and reckless endangerment. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $15,000.
