41-year-old Robert Cirilo was jailed Monday when police observed he was too drunk to board his flight at Nashville International Airport. As officers were patrolling, they saw Cirilo standing in line at Tootsie’s Bar, clearly drunk. They walked over to him, and he said that his phone was dead and he was just trying to get home. He had slurred speech and alcohol coming from his breath as he spoke. Officers were told that Cirilo was denied boarding due to his level of intoxication. Officers made a phone call to a friend who informed them that Cirilo had a flight later that day. Officers helped Cirilo obtain a new ticket and walked him to his gate. Officers were called back to the gate shortly after due to Cirilo being disruptive, looking for his lost phone. He was visibly drunk and denied boarding once again. Officers asked him to gather his belongings that were scattered on the floor so they could escort him to a hotel, but he was too drunk to gather anything and was unable to care for himself.
Robert Cirilo was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on May 15th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $50.
