39-year-old Ryan Taylor Maher was jailed early in the morning on November 20th after his wife requested a welfare check at BNA in the middle of the night because she believed her husband was drunk. As officers walked into the main lobby, they spotted Maher headed toward TSA, which was closed with all their doors shut. Officers explained to Maher that they were doing a welfare check because his wife, whom he was on the phone with, was worried about him. He had an unmistakable odor of alcohol coming from his body and told the police he missed his flight twice and was trying for the third time today to fly out. Maher was swaying repeatedly as he told police he would get an Uber. The officers advised Maher that they needed to see him book the Uber to prove he could care for himself, but he couldn’t open the application. He kept swaying repeatedly and took a while to respond to every question. When officers saw him fall over, they placed him in custody.
