21-year-old George Hurst was at the airport bar of Puckett’s inside the Nashville International Airport Thursday when he was refused alcohol service due to his already high level of intoxication. He became irate with staff, who notified airport police, and then moved on to the next bar, where officers located him sitting at Southern Steak and Oyster. He was advised he was no longer able to drink at any of the airport bars and needed to move toward his gate so he could make his flight. He refused and told officers, “I don’t fuck with police, don’t talk to me!” He became more aggressive in his refusal to leave the bar and was taken into custody after a brief struggle.
