Woman Dragged Off Plane By Police For Refusing To Turn Off Her Cell Phone [Video]
A Woman was removed from a US Airways flight by police after she refused to turn off her cell phone and attacked them. Another passenger caught the entire incident on tape.
The 22-year-old woman was on a flight from Fort Lauderdale to Charlotte when she got into an argument with flight attendants about turning off her cell phone. Three police officers came on to the plane to escort her back to the terminal.
On the video, a deputy can be heard saying, “You can get off the plane or you can get off the plane and go to jail.” She then yelled that she has not caused any problems and that she was college educated. She warned officers not to touch her before attacking them.
She was charged with battery on an officer after one officer was kicked, another was elbowed in the head and another was scratched as they struggled to remove her.
I’ll never understand why people don’t get the fact that they have to turn off their phone for 15 minutes. Nobody in the world is that important that they need their phone on EVERY SINGLE SECOND!
The other part that bothers me is that she makes a point to tell the police that she is college educated. Who cares?! At that moment she could have been Bill Nye and it wouldn’t have mattered, she was still being an idiot.
