Spirit Airlines has banned a drunk woman from saying ‘shoot me’ to police after allegedly assaulting two flight attendants and being tied up by other passengers.

In addition, she appeared to smell of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes, slurred and told police she had been drinking ‘a lot’.

Spirit Airlines spokeswoman Nicole Aguiar confirmed to The Tennessean that authorities had removed ‘a passenger for unruly behaviour’.

“We do not tolerate aggression of any kind and this passenger is no longer welcome on any of our flights,” Aguiar told the newspaper.

‘Thank you to our guests who supported our crew and local law enforcement for their support. We will work with the relevant authorities to ensure this individual is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. ‘

Henry was charged with public intoxication. She spent the night behind bars and was released Sunday morning because the Spirit Airlines crew involved denied the press charges, court documents show.

It was not immediately known why the crew decided to fight the pressing charges.

The Spirit Airlines incident is one of the latest in a string of violent unruly passengers on flights since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, many involving resistance to face-to-face authority. mask on flight.
