Parker Buckner

NASHVILLE (WSMV) - A man is facing charges for his alleged involvement during the riots in downtown Nashville back in May.

Metro Police say 20-year-old Parker Buckner was charged overnight with vandalism. 

According to officials, Buckner was standing on the hood of a MNPD Marked Police car that was parked on the Gay Street connector. 

Video surveillance shows Buckner dancing while on the hood and then using a stick-shaped object to smash out the driver door window of the police car.

His bond has been set at $75,000.
