A PASSENGER on a Spirit Airlines flight from Fort Lauderdale was arrested upon arrival in Nashville, after she allegedly assaulted two flight attendants and was restrained with zip ties by a fellow passenger.
Amanda Henry, 42, reportedly punched a flight attendant and pulled another’s hair, and told police officers she drank “a lot,” also reportedly demanding, “shoot me.”
Information on the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office website confirms Henry was arrested for public intoxication on November 27.
According to the Nashville Tennessean, an arrest affidavit states that a fellow passenger restrained Henry’s feet with zip ties.
Along with smelling of alcohol, Henry had bloodshot eyes, and slurred her words.
However, police could understand some phrases: Henry used expletives and said “shoot me” to the officers, also insisting she “didn’t do anything wrong.”
The unruly passenger also tried to keep police from closing the door on the police car during the arrest.
In an email to the Tennessean, a Spirit Airlines spokesperson thanked “guests who assisted our crew,” as well as local law enforcement, for handling the incident.
