The past few weeks, we’ve seen the police involved when a United Airlines Passenger Dragged Off Plane Due To Oversell, then the airline found itself in more hot water with United Airlines Now Kicks Off Wedding Couple from Plane.
The latest passenger/airline debacle comes to Delta as a passenger smacks an airline ticket agent in Indianapolis. It appears the passenger was trying to purchase a ticket after the ticket counter was closed.
I guess she hasn’t heard of their mobile app, so when she was denied, passenger Shamanika Howard smacked the Delta ticket agent. The victim reported having a headache after the incident.
Per Fox 59,
Police arrested a woman at the Indianapolis International Airport after she allegedly smacked a Delta Air Lines employee and claimed God told her to do it.
Officers with the Indianapolis Airport Police Department (IAPD) responded to a report of battery at the Delta Air Lines ticket counter on Tuesday, April 11 around 10:25 p.m.
Police located suspect Shamanika Howard at the scene.
Howard told police she was at the ticket counter because she wanted to purchase a ticket. A Delta employee told Howard that she couldn’t purchase a ticket at that time because the counters were closed.
