An Early Checkout for the Flying Tomato

September 18, 2012 By:K. Clare Johnson

Guests at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel Nashville got an unexpectedly early wake-up call, allegedly thanks to Olympic snowboarder Shaun White. It's been reported that White, the two-time Olympic Gold medalist nicknamed "The Flying Tomato," pulled a fire alarm at the luxury property which caused an early morning evacuation on Sunday.  White fell and hit his head in the ensuing commotion, and was transported and then released from a local hospital.  The evening ended for White with an arrest for vandalism and public intoxication. 

Let's hope the other guests requested a late check-out time.
