What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas…unless you get thrown off the plane before even leaving for Vegas.
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL—When she boarded her flight on Thursday evening, 32-year old Valerie Gonzalez probably thought she’d be spending her weekend in Las Vegas instead of a Broward County jail cell.
However, when Gonzalez learned her seat assignment on a Vegas-bound JetBlue flight was next to a three-year old, she become irate, according to Local10.com.
“I’m not sitting next to a f—ing 3-year-old. I’ve been drinking all day,” Gonzalez said, according a Broward Sheriff’s Office incident report.
Unfortunately for Gonzales, much of her tirade was captured by fellow passengers.
“According to the incident report,” reports Local10.com, “Gonzalez wanted to reenter the plane after leaving, and then hit a JetBlue agent on the head who tried to stop her.”
Another passenger told deputies Gonzalez also struck her on the arm when she refused to switch seats with her, but the passenger did not want to press charges against Gonzalez.
Authorities said Gonzalez spit at JetBlue employees and responding deputies as she was being taken into custody, but she stopped spitting once deputies requested a spit mask. The mask was not used, but Gonzalez was handcuffed and had leg restraints applied as she was seated in a wheelchair and taken to a BSO vehicle, authorities said.
As of Friday, instead of partying in Las Vegas, Gonzales was still sitting in a North Broward Bureau jail cell charged with battery.
