62-year-old Mark Melvin Swayze fell onto the floor at Nashville International Airport in the early hours of April 4th. When officers arrived, they provided Swayze with medical attention. He refused to be transported to the hospital for any additional treatment and advised officers he had multiple alcoholic beverages on his flight from Dallas, Texas, to Nashville, Tennessee. While he was speaking, officers noticed he reeked of alcohol, so they asked him about the fall, but he was unable to give them any information. Swayze was deemed a danger to himself and others and was taken into custody for public intoxication.
