Travel friends, I couldn’t make this one up, even if I tried.
OK…back in October, 22-year-old Private Donovan Paywa became an Air Assault graduate from Fort Campbell. On December 18th, he was assigned to transport some rifles out of Nashville International Airport (BNA).
While at the terminal, he consumed several mixed drinks at one of the terminal’s bars. According to the police report, staff at the bar noticed he had become intoxicated, so they cut him off and only offered him crackers and water.
The bar staff noticed that Pvt. Paywa had also soiled his pants; that’s when police were called. By the time the officers arrived, Panya had slurred speech and could no longer stand without assistance, along with showing evidence of feces in his jeans.
Officer Brennan (who wrote the police report), along with Officer Aly sat Pvt. Paywa down to interview him. Because of his level of inebriation, they gave him 3 choices: have someone pick pick him up for a rebooked flight, go to the hospital, or go to jail for Public Intoxication.
The Private apparently had no one in the area who could come get him, and refused to go to the hospital. According to Ofc. Brennan, Pvt. Paywa then began loudly and repeatedly cursing, “F**K YOU!,” despite families and children nearby and watching.
The officers then arrested Pvt. Paywa for Public Intoxication. He was non-compliant with their attempts to handcuff him, and continued to curse loudly, this time saying, “F**K YOU! YOUR FAMILY IS DEAD!”
Once handcuffed, they were able to escort him from the terminal to a police car, where he was brought to the local jail. He was reportedly released and his case dismissed after an eight-hour intoxication hold.
Paywa’s Instagram account was deleted soon after Scoop: Nashville posted about the events at BNA, but not before they were able to garner some photos from it (NSFW warning: adult language). The Facebook account of Paywa’s former company, Alpha Company, 326 BEB, has also been shut down.
I’ve never been in the armed services, but comments to Scoop: Nashville’s post about the incident on Facebook (NSFW warning: adult language) suggest that Private Donovan Paywa is going to find himself in a heap of trouble with the U.S. Army pretty soon.
