26-year-old Payton Phillips was unruly in a taxi, and the driver got out of the vehicle to approach police at the Shell station Hermitage Ave on Thursday. The taxi driver told the officers that he no longer wanted him in his cab due to his behavior. Payton stumbled out of the cab and spoke with the police. He had visible signs of intoxication and smelled strongly of alcohol while telling police that he recently was kicked out of Jason Aldean’s. Police asked him if he had friends around but he stated that he was alone. When police attempted to help him get an Uber he said that he left his phone in the Taxi. They could not find the phone, so they placed him into custody for public intoxication due to him being a danger to himself.
Payton Tyler Phillips was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on September 28th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $100.
