57-year-old Joseph Wayne Kingsland was found lying on the ground near gate C8 at Nashville International Airport around 2 p.m. February 1st. Upon arrival, officers observed Kingsland sitting upright on the floor, disoriented, with a minor laceration on the bridge of his nose. Gate agents advised Officers that Kingsland had missed his 1:30 p.m. and hit his nose on a seat in the gate area when he fell after trying to stand up. Kingsland then remained lying on the floor until officers found him. Officers smelled the odor of alcohol coming from Kingsland as he became vulgar, needing assistance to stand up. They deemed him a danger to himself and others, so he was taken into custody for public intoxication.
