Professional Hockey Player Bobby Ryan arrested at Nashville Airport

Share this article...

35-year-old storied NHL Hockey star Bobby Ryan, who has the assumed (and somewhat legal[link]) name of Robert Shane Ryan, was arrested in Nashville Monday at the Nashville International Airport. An airport store reported that Ryan had taken items and left without paying and alerted Airport Police, who observed him on security cameras. Ryan left the stolen items on a counter along his way and entered Little Harpeth Brewing, where officers found him seated at the bar ordering a drink. Police say he was not compliant with them, was extremely intoxicated, and did not know where he was, the date, or the time, and could not stand on his own. The store declined prosecution on the recovered items, and Ryan was jailed for public intoxication.

Ryan was awarded the NHL’s Masterton Trophy previously after a battle with alcohol abuse. The award goes to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey. Ryan had taken an extended leave of absence from the Ottawa Senators starting in November 2019 to enter the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program, citing his issues with alcohol abuse.

Robert Shane Ryan was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 25th, charged with public intoxication. He was released with charges dismissed after the standard 8 hour public intox hold.
