Chris Christie’s niece, Shannon Epstein, hurled racial slurs on the plane

Chris Christie’s niece Shannon Epstein’s plane meltdown began when she hurled racial slurs at fellow passengers on the Spirit Airlines flight on Thanksgiving Day, Post documents show.

Epstein, 25, was later slapped with multiple charges related to her violent arrest just before 6 a.m. on Nov. 24 at the New Orleans airport. She is said to have injured six police officers – by biting and spitting on them – and yelled, “Do you know who I am?”

A Spirit Airlines supervisor told a responding officer that Epstein “asked Hispanic families if they were smuggling cocaine,” as the arrest documents detailed, and forced the plane to turn around and return to the gate it had just exited.

Another Gate agent told police that Epstein, who is from New Jersey but now lives in New Orleans, used a “guttural term” but did not specify which term.

The flight from New Orleans, Louisiana to New Jersey was ready to take off promptly at 5:35 a.m. but was delayed 22 minutes due to their antics, police said in the report. It was in the Jetway, being escorted off the plane, that Epstein’s altercation with officers took place.

Epstein displayed “unusual strength” as she fended off cops after she was removed from the plane, and “white foam came from the sides of her mouth,” police documents detail.

“Do you know who I am? I’m Chris Christie’s daughter and you’re so f—ed. You’re going to lose your job because of these s—. I know Donald Trump,” she yelled at arresting officers.

Police believe her behavior was consistent with the use of alcohol and drugs.

In her zeal against the police, the ex-government’s niece also accused the officers of homophobia.

“By this time tomorrow you will both be in prison. What the hell have I done? I am a lesbian. Is that it? wanna put your dk in me It is, isn’t it. Is that what it’s about? You want to put your cock in my mouth, right? You’re so f—ed, you’re a—hole,” she said.

Epstein was eventually charged with six counts of assaulting a police officer, three counts of disturbing the peace, one count of resisting a violent arrest, and one count of whereabouts after interdiction. She later left prison on Thanksgiving Day after posting bail of more than $10,000.
