Screw in Snow Tire

Took the dog out and noticed a screw in my tire. Not sure when I ran over it, but the car has been in the garage for over 10 hours. The tire pressure is 36 psi. It is a Dunlop Winter Sport 3D run flat, and it appears there is a road hazard warranty on it. I called the number in the warranty to locate a dealer. There was only 1 dealer for this run flat tire and it is 62 miles from my home. It will not be open until Monday. Is it safe to drive short distances, or do I need to stay put until Monday? Do you think it can be patched or will I need a replacement? Thank you.
