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.
