37-year-old Ryan Joyce was denied boarding a Southwest Airlines flight at the Nashville International Airport on February 11 at 4 p.m. Airport police stated Joyce smelled of alcohol and had slurred speech, and was sitting in a wheelchair when they arrived, despite Joyce insisting he was not intoxicated. Officers wheeled him to the ticket counter to rebook on a new flight, but none were available. He then attempted to gather his bags and walk away, but it was deemed he was too intoxicated to care for himself, so he was taken into custody.
Ryan Joyce was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on Feb 11, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $100.
