Austin Brown threatens couple with gun at Nashville International Airport

28-year-old Austin Brown had an altercation with Richard and Kristin Diaz at Nashville International Airport on January 29th. Both parties flagged officers down regarding the incident, so they separated them to investigate. As they approached Brown, they were advised by dispatch that the passenger of the second car, Mrs. Diaz, who had called the police, advised that Brown had pulled a gun on her and her husband. Officers spoke with Brown and asked him if he had a gun, to which he replied, “Yes,” so they had him exit the vehicle as they secured it, with his consent, before further questioning. Then, Brown said the other vehicle, occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Diaz, followed him off from the departure level and showed aggression while sitting in traffic, so he pulled over to let them pass. He said they pulled alongside him while waiting at the red light on Terminal Drive and started yelling at him, which prompted him to pull the magazine attachment out of his pistol, showing it, asking them, “If they were going to have a problem.”

Officers then went to speak with Richard and Kristin, who provided similar stories, stating when Mr. Diaz was picking his wife up from departure, Brown was behind him, blowing his horn and being aggressive. When Mrs. Diaz entered the car, Brown sped past them, giving the middle finger. They said he was holding a small black item in his hand, waving for them to approach him. As they approached the stoplight on Terminal Drive, Brown stopped next to their vehicle, even though no cars were in front of him. Brown rolled down his window and presented his firearm, asking them, “Are we going to have a problem?” Mrs. Diaz was still shaken up during questioning. However, both Richard and Kristin told officers they were certain he was holding the firearm when he threatened them. Brown was taken into custody for aggravated assault.
