A man considered by many to be the Kingpin of Nashville’s Street Racing Scene has hit the brakes, thanks to the Nashville District Attorney’s Office.
Austin Scott entered a guilty plea last week in courtroom 5D in front of Judge Melissa Blackburn.
Scott pled guilty to 4 counts of Inciting a Riot and 1 count of Reckless Driving.
Scott’s effective sentence is two 11/29 sentences suspended to supervised probation. The terms of his probation are that he must complete a number of public safety courses, including the ADDC8 course and the Arrive Alive at 25 course, along with 48 hours of community service, and adhere to the ‘stay away’ order that prohibits him from any form of street racing activity or gathering, including through social media of any kind.
Community leaders praised the cooperation between the Metro Nashville Police Department and the District Attorney’s Vehicular Crimes Unit in the conviction. Both agencies say the crackdown on illegal street racing and gatherings that threaten public safety will continue.
