30-year-old Ryan Perkins was found slumped over the wheel of his silver Ford truck in the arrivals level of the Nashville International Airport late Friday night. It took several minutes of knocking on the window to awaken Perkins, who then rolled down his window to speak with officers. He reeked of alcohol and had an open case of Truly Hard Seltzer in the passenger seat, with six open and empty cans, and two empty small bottles of Fireball Whiskey. A Ruger .380 handgun was also found in the truck. Perkins would later blow a 0.277% BAC on a breathalyzer.
Ryan Howard Perkins of Safari Camp Road in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on March 4, charged with driving under the influence (DUI) and possession of a weapon under the influence. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $3,000, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave him pre-trial release from their facility.
