Disruptive Passenger Arrested

A woman who was removed from a flight that was diverted to North Carolina has been charged with disorderly conduct after police say she later got into an argument with an airline employee.

Officials at Raleigh-Durham Airport told multiple media outlets an unruly passenger was removed from a Southwest Airlines flight from Orlando, Fla., to Providence, R.I., that landed in Raleigh on Saturday evening.

Airport spokesman Andrew Sawyer told WRAL-TV that 46-year-old Tina Seymour of Mastic Beach, N.Y., came back to the airport intoxicated two hours later and got into an argument with a baggage claim employee.

A Wake County arrest warrant says Seymour used profanity and resisted attempts by police to handcuff her. She was being held in the Wake County jail until a hearing Monday.

    What makes you think she's a minority?? She lives in Mastic Beach, NY - a suburb of Suffolk County, which has an 88% white population???? Lack of common sense usually runs in the family - perhaps she's one of your relatives.

    Maybe she didn't like the meal?

    Southwest should sue her for the cost associated with an unscheduled stop. She should also be permanently placed on the no-fly list. People need to realize there are consequences associated with their actions.

    That's what she gets! Acting stupid on an airplane... What's with people? Can't act like adults? As far as I'm concerned she can stay in NY. She can resist arrest up there and get handled. Loser.
