25-year-old Emily Nicole Pederson was causing a disturbance at The Southern Steak and Oyster restaurant inside Nashville Airport on November 7th. Officers spoke with an employee of the restaurant who advised them that they wanted Pederson to pay her tab and leave due to her yelling at a bartender and annoying other customers. Pederson started crying after officers approached her to introduce themselves as she provided her identification. Officers noticed her to be visibly intoxicated and assisted her in gathering her belongings and rebooking her flight. Pederson was escorted to her gate after successfully rebooking and was advised by officers to stay there until her flight was boarding. Deputies spoke with Southwest representatives about ensuring Pederson could get home tonight, and they insisted they would try. The Southwest Representative called officers and told them Pederson had left the area and entered the Men’s restroom, making males uncomfortable. Officers located her, and she told them she was waiting for a friend to pick her up; when they asked her if she knew where she was, she insisted she was in Charlotte, NC. Pederson was deemed unable to take care of herself and was taken into custody for public intoxication.
Emily Nicole Pederson was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 11th, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $100.
