Shana Lyons deemed too drunk for Nashville International Airport

Share this article...

35-year-old Shana Leigh Lyons was refused boarding at Gate C22 at Nashville International Airport on March 20th. When officers arrived, they noticed she was crying by the gate desk, visibly upset, as airline employees pointed her out. Lyons reeked of alcohol as officers asked for her identification, which she struggled to find, rummaging through her purse and grabbing a wallet that did not have it. Lyons then located her ID and gave it to the officers, so they went to run her information through their system. During this, the airline employees got Lyons rebooked for the next day, attempted to book a hotel for her, and then called her husband. Officers were given the number for the hotel and tried to get Lyons to call to ask if they had any vacancies. Lyons did not follow the instructions, and officers determined she could not care for herself. Officers grabbed Lyon’s things, detained her, and escorted her to the patrol car. They notified Lyon’s husband of the situation and told him she would call him once she was released. Lyons was taken into custody for public intoxication.
