31-year-old Caroline “Carrie” Suzanne Lierl was at the Nashville International Airport late Saturday night when employees observed her to be extremely intoxicated and contacted Airport police. Lierl claimed she was on a flight to Cincinnati at 7:17, but no such flight could be found, and she did not have a boarding pass. She was asked to leave the area and go about her evening; however, she refused and became a disturbance to airport operations. As officers took her into custody for public intoxication, Lierl kicked Officer Tomlin and Sgt. Berens multiple times and attempted to flee the scene to avoid arrest.
Caroline Suzanne Lierl was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on November 12th, charged with 2 counts of assault of an officer, resisting arrest, and public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $2,550.
