Nashville Police officers arrested four men from early Sunday morning after they were found taking over the intersection of McGavock Pike at Century Boulevard doing donuts and burnouts in a white Dodge Charger.
Officers arrived at 1 a.m. to find more than 60 vehicles participating in the dangerous driving stunts. As they were approaching the intersection, they witnessed a man fire a gunshot into the air around bystanders and vehicles.
The driver, Xavier Daimwood, 19, of Shelbyville, was taken into custody after surrendering to officers on Donelson Pike at Lebanon Pike. He was charged with aggravated reckless driving, drag racing, evading arrest, disorderly conduct, inciting a riot, and driving under the influence.
Two passengers, Gharri Brown, 19, and Justin Oakes, 18, both of Shelbyville, were charged with rioting.
A handgun and marijuana were recovered from underneath the rear driver’s side seat. That passenger, Lakota Young, 20, of Estill Springs, was charged with reckless endangerment with a weapon, drug possession, rioting, and unlawful possession of a weapon.
