41-year-old Tony A. Gainous is charged with public intoxication and criminal trespass after his behavior at a Vanderbilt Football game last week. Vanderbilt Police initially responded to an individual, identified as Gainous, who was sitting in the wrong section. It was soon discovered he did not have a ticket to the game and was escorted outside the gates. A short time later, he jumped the gate and drunkenly ran onto the football field, stumbling and falling. He was issued a criminal trespass warning and again escorted from the property. Still not deterred, Gainous then jumped Gate 2 to get into the stadium. Tired of dealing with his antics, Vanderbilt police took him into custody and transported him to booking downtown.
35-year-old Christopher Kyle Gainous was escorted out of Vanderbilt Stadium Saturday night after police say he jumped the fence and didn’t have a ticket to the game. He was told to leave the property and not return while he was screaming and yelling at Vanderbilt fans. After being escorted out, he re-entered the stadium and was part of a group that was attempting to run across the football field at approximately 8:30 p.m. As he was placed into cuffs, he continued to be disorderly and attempted to headbutt another Vanderbilt fan. Officers say he “reeked of alcohol” during their interaction.
