NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A 63-year-old woman breached a concourse exit at Nashville International Airport, refusing to stop for officers, as she explained she needed to make her flight, according to police.

An arrest warrant states airport officers responded around 4 p.m. Wednesday after reports of a woman breaching the A-B concourse exit, headed toward concourse A.
