Bailee Nelson jailed on riot charge after involvement in street racing meetup in Nashville

21-year-old Bailee Nelson was one of two people charged this weekend as Metro police work to crack down on street racing across Nashville. Metro police reported Micah Hooker, 21, and his passenger Nelson, sped away from a meet-up at a commercial parking lot on Corporate Drive Saturday night. Street racers reportedly practiced burnouts and other maneuvers in the Corporate Drive parking lot. A Metro helicopter crew tracked Hooker and Nelson as they drove a 2020 green Dodge Challenger, and Hooker turned his lights off in an unsuccessful effort to avoid officers. Hooker reportedly almost hit two other motorists head-on. Hooker made a brief stop, and Officer Hausman came up on the rear of the vehicle, which made Hooker turn his lights off again and flee with his vehicle blacked out. Officers eventually stopped Hooker and Nelson at the intersection of Hamilton Church Road and Hobson Pike. Nelson was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing, rioting, and gun theft after a pistol in her purse was determined to have been stolen out of Smyrna. She said she did not know it was stolen because it was her sister’s pistol. Nelson told police that her sister bought it from Kings Firearms in Columbia. Hooker and Nelson are the latest to be charged amid Metro police’s continuing street racer enforcement effort.
