The incident, according to police, took place at the Key West International Airport. Mederos was booked in the Stock Island Detention Center but released the next morning without bond.

A deputy allegedly took Mederos that he needed to surrender his Secured Identification Display Area badge due to the fact that he was not allowed in certain areas at the airport.
