Michael Shafermeyer, 30, was arrested Saturday boarding a flight at Lambert Airport Saturday.

After spending 3 ½ days in jail, he spoke with News 4 to give his side of the story.

Shafermeyer said he was flying to Maryland to get married and because he was anxious about the wedding and nervous about flying, he had a few drinks before getting to the airport.
