Another day, another incident at an airport. This time, it was passengers at an airport in Florida who, when told of flight cancellations, took out their anger on the airline staff.
According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, three travelers were arrested after they screamed at and threatened Spirit Airline employees, causing a near-riot in a crowd of about 500 people at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
Arrest reports assert that those detained were ‘threatening bodily harm’ to the airline employees and challenging them to fights. All three of the people who were arrested were charged with disorderly conduct, inciting a riot and resisting arrest.
