Airport Police responded to a disturbance at Gate C10 Thursday, where an American Airlines Pilot simply pointed at 44-year-old John Alexander Enloe, who he described as “the man in the red shirt.” Enloe, who was visibly intoxicated, told police he was actually the victim of an assault. He explained that another passenger continued to place their bags in what he considered to be a public walkway, and he continued to move them out of the walkway. The other passenger made contact with Enloe’s hand as it was on their suitcase, and Enloe claimed an assault.
Officers advised Enloe he could go to the magistrate’s office and swear out a warrant if he wished to prosecute for the perceived assault. Unhappy the police were not arresting his alleged assailant, Enloe began screaming and dramatically replaying the events leading up to the officers’ arrival. He was screaming at uninvolved flight crews and cursing with children present in the area. After he refused to calm down, Enloe was taken into custody and charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
Nashville Airport Police responded to American Airlines C15 Gate area Sunday after 35-year-old Matthew Slater was denied boarding due to his extreme level of intoxication. Officers attempted to explain he would simply be rebooked for the following morning and escort him outside of the secure area of the airport so he could arrange for somewhere to stay for the evening. Slater became increasingly upset he would not make his scheduled flight and refused to leave the secured area of the airport. He was eventually taken into custody and charged with public intoxication. Slater later posted on social media to his friends: “After SEVERAL delays, Massive problems and a night in an airport, finally making it to Chicago”.
