The flight headed to its original Chicago destination after the woman was taken off the plane.
A spokesman for the Indianapolis Airport said the flight was diverted to Indy, and the woman was restrained and moved to the rear of the plane until it could land.
A woman was eliminated Monday afternoon from an American Airways flight from Miami to Chicago because of her unruly behavior.
Airline spokeswoman Laura Masvidal says the flight, which departed from Miami, landed around 5:45 p.m. Monday at Indianapolis worldwide Airport.
The woman hit a passenger and kissed a flight attendant, he said.
Airport police boarded the plane and took the woman into custody.
“Owww”, she called out as a fellow passenger recorded video of officers leading her in handcuffs down the aisle of the jet.
Definitely the most scared I’ve ever been in my life. “She was charged with various things including battery with injury, criminal recklessness, disorderly conduct and disrupting the operation of an aircraft”. “Could only hear someone screaming and see several people in the back of the plane”, he tweeted.
“It was very disturbing, and you just feel bad for her”, fellow passenger Karen Moersch said.
After the lady was eliminated, the flight continued on to Chicago, based on American Airways on-line flight knowledge.
