You’re too drunk to leave Nashville — Michelle Balke & James Balke arrested at airport

55-year-old Michelle Kay Balke & 60-year-old James Balke were attempting to fly out of Nashville late Monday; however, gate agents at the Nashville International airport denied boarding to both parties due to their extreme level of intoxication. The couple became verbally aggressive, with each one blaming the other for their predicament. Their argument causes a disturbance to airport operations and the gathering of people now watching. Airport police arrived, and they were asked to leave the property. As they were walking out, they again began yelling at each other, and after multiple attempts to calm the situation, both parties were taken into custody for public intoxication.

Alyson Smith jailed after drunken fiasco at Nashville International Airport

26-year-old Alyson Smith was jailed Friday night after she became irate at the Nashville International Airport. She initially approached airport police around 8 p.m. while reeking of alcohol and barely able to stand on her own. She explained her fight had been delayed and he had been drinking and needed a refund. Officer Pallan escorted her to the ticket counter, which was given to her by the American Airlines agent, despite her being obnoxiously loud and cursing during the entire interaction. She was then escorted to pick up her luggage, only to find out that it was already on the plane, so it would have to be sent back and picked up at a later time. This upset Smith even more, and she now demanded to be re-booked, which was denied to her extreme intoxication. She became belligerent and abusive and was placed into custody for public intoxication.
