Lindsay Bien-aime, a passenger on US Airways flight, allegedly refused several orders from the flight crew to stop talking on her cell phone on Sunday. The pilot was reportedly forced to return the plane to the gate, much to the dismay of travelers on the early morning flight, according to CBS affiliate WBTV.
Then things got worse. Sheriff's deputies tried to escort the woman from the plane, but Bien-aime stubbornly refused. Another passenger captured cell phone video of the incident.
After a few minutes of coaxing, the deputies attempted to physically remove Bien-aime, who was traveling with her young son, from the cabin. According to an arrest report obtained by WBTV, Bien-aime "kicked one deputy in the groin, elbowed another deputy in the face and scratched at least two other deputies" as they escorted her off the plane, the station writes.
Video of the incident was posted to a Reddit forum Monday. Some commenters weresurprised the woman continued to make a stink even after deputies were called to the scene.
"Wouldn't any normal person see that its a no-win situation, by the time you've got 3 cops on you? That no 'reasoning' -- and certainly not intransigence -- is going to work with them," wrote user petzl20.
Federal Aviation Administration rules prohibit the in-flight use of cell phones and other electronic devices once the cabin doors are closed, although a proposal being drafted by the FAA might soon ease restrictions on the use of certain gadgets.
