41-year-old Richard Deeb was at the TSA Security Checkpoint at the Nashville International Airport late Sunday afternoon when he was denied boarding by American Airlines due to his level of intoxication. At the checkpoint, he was screaming, “bend over and cough!” and creating a disturbance for other passengers. He was offered the opportunity to rebook his flight for the next day but refused. He also refused any arranged rides to a hotel but stated he wasn’t leaving the airport. Leave, he did, in handcuffs, charged with public intoxication.
Richard Deeb was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 26, charged with public intoxication. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $100.
