You’ve met her before. The names may change but the face is usually a bit on the dark side.
She’s the one pushing to the front of the line. She’s the rude one, cursing and spitting.
This time she tried her maddening behavior on an Delta Airlines flight out of Detroit. This time she was litterally dragged off.
A woman was captured on video being dragged off an airplane by the police after she did not comply with boarding procedures, according to CBS.
The woman, who remains unnamed, refused to leave Delta flight 2038 at Detroit Metropolitan Airport before it took off for San Diego around 8am on Monday, according to a Delta spokesperson.
According to Rene deLambert, she stormed past the gate agent and failed to check in ‘because she wasn’t an early boarder’ before demanding overhead bin space, FOX reported.
She was arrested for violation of airport ordinances, including failure to leave the aircraft, although she has not been formally charged, the spokesperson said.
Video footage of the incident, which was shared by blogger RenesPoints, showed police dragging the woman down the aisle by her arms as she lay flat on her back.
Many of the passengers craned their necks and expressed their shock as they watched police officers struggle to pull her off the plane.
Erica Donerson, a spokesperson for Delta Air Lines, said the passenger ‘would not comply with boarding and baggage check procedures’.
Delta might think about segregating their planes. Well-behaved whites on one plane, badly behaved blacks on another.
And no alcohol for anyone, although there’s no allegation that alcohol played a role in this incident.
