The thirsty traveler
Police responded to concourse A at the Nashville International Airport in response to a drunk and disorderly man who had been at the bar and was “hardly able to walk on his own.” The suspect, 51, had gotten into an argument with a woman at the bar and began rattling off expletives. He then attempted to get into a brawl with the woman’s son, but to no avail. A few minutes later the suspect tried to board his United Airlines flight but was denied access and was asked to leave. Not surprisingly, the unruly traveler refused, and then was arrested after he “clinched his fist while talking with officers as though he might try to hit someone.”
No room at the inn
A Glenview couple made a startling discovery in the middle of the night when they stumbled upon a strange man sleeping in their living room. The husband woke the snoozing suspect, who apparently had wandered in through the couple’s unlocked front door and sprawled out on their couch. The homeowners called police, and by the time they arrived, the perp, 26, hadn’t strayed too far—he was barefoot and urinating in the couple’s front yard. Officers say the suspect told them “he did not know where he was or how he got there.” Apparently, the man doesn’t live in that neighborhood or know anyone who does. Although the suspect “did not damage anything or harm anybody,” he was booked for disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
Mr. Rogers rolling in his grave
A man irate about his next-door neighbor’s yapping dogs (and apparently her choice of front-yard décor) continued berating the woman even after he learned she was a cop. “I don’t care if you are a police officer; if you don’t take care of your barking dogs and take down that flag I’m going to take care of it myself,” the suspect screamed. The 53-year-old ignored numerous requests to leave the officer’s property and instead continued to gripe about her noisy canines for the next 10 minutes. He then threw a threatening note in the victim’s face, which apparently was enough to land him in jail for assault. No word on what type of flag the suspect found so offensive.
