A woman threw punches and kicked a United Airlines ticket agent at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, authorities said.
The incident happened on Tuesday, a day when many passengers were scrambling for flights amid the delays and cancellations caused by the frigid weather gripping much of the northern part of the country.

I can’t count the number of times I’ve wanted to do this.
Couldn't she get close enough to pull hair and bite, only kidding, of course!
I'm assuming the attacker is Amish or has she taken part in the "knock out games?"
Sure, that will get you to your destination much much faster..... (*eye roll*)
I was in Detroit during an equally frigid snowbound winter a few years ago, flying in one of the turboprops they have parked in this big lot and you have to ride the little shuttle out to board. Some passenger asked the gate guy what the hold up was, not confrontational, nothing physical, and they called the airport cops on him!
"It says she had to protect herself by covering her face and blocking punches that you were throwing at the United Airlines ticket agent," Hurley said.
Additionally, "It says you grabbed her hair, pulled her to the floor, kicked her in the stomach and legs as she laid helpless on the floor," the judge said.
The attack was broken up by two men who came to the aid of the ticket agent who ended up with bruises on her face, head, stomach and legs, Hurley said.
I wasn’t too far from that with some idiot in the Delta ticket line about 10 years ago. The line was not moving, they had several stations without passengers. God knows what the agents were doing, but it wasn’t helping customers. I complained to the guy managing the line, and he dropped the 9/11 line, as if more security measures had anything to do with piss poor customer service. I went ballistic. Not sure if those around me were cheering or rolling their eyes, but it sure was fun.
If you go to the link you will see that she is one of 0bama’s daughters. These people have taken their exaggerated sense of entitlement and arrogance to a new level.
My thoughts are that this is a planned attempt to force us to fight back giving Obama the excuse to declare martial law.

Against Lil' Miss Gibsmedat or the two men who stopped her?
People just need to read the fine print at the bottom of their ticket.
“We can do whatever we want, whenever we want to whoever we want. Neener Neener.”
I was on a flight once to Dallas that had real weather problems. We were late arriving at Dallas and many people missed their connecting flights and there were no more flights to their destination that day. People went crazy. I’ve seen less screaming at riots. The airline put people up overnight and fed them. I was the last person in line at the ticket counter. The couple in front of me used every swear word I know at the ticket agent and threatened him. The ticket agent said to them, “Here’s your voucher to the Motel 6. There is a McDonalds nearby and here is a voucher for that.”
They left screaming and crying. The ticket agent sighed and looked at me and said, “Next.”
I smiled at him and told him that I understood that he didn’t control the weather and anything he could give me was fine. He stared at me. Then, he said, “Here is a voucher for The Hilton Hotel. They have a great restaurant and here is a voucher for a meal there.”
I had a great steak and a great nights rest. People appreciate a little kindness after a lot of abuse.
This is disproportionate punishment. They need to go out and round-up three white women and arrest them.
How could I possibly guessed at this./S
The problem is that her mama never stopped her from doing that.
I’m SHOCKED, shocked I say!
My money is against the men who stopped her.
Since it was violence and perhaps a domestic flight, does this count as domestic violence against women?
Polar Vortex Rage will be her defense.
“People appreciate a little kindness after a lot of abuse.”
Indeed, that has been my experience; I have never taken it out on an agent.
Yes, the morons are out there, but for the most part, it is rarely their fault.
My last ‘incident’ was having to approach a United agent who had an attitude as I started the conversation; she immediately became nearly apologetic once I expressed my understanding for the situation; got me on the next flight out with an upgraded seat (the flight had originated on a different airline).
It doesn't take much. I was at Jacksonville International on Tuesday Morning learning that my 2nd flight to Dulles had been cancelled. (So far I'm at 4 and counting.)
An individual in line with me, a Chinese national, became vocally agitated. Not screaming, yelling or even shouting. Just upset. They called the cops on him. He wasn't arrested but the cops made it very clear that indeed he would not be flying anywhere that day.
The agent did give me an option to catch my connecting flight from Dulles to Dubai. He smiled and told me I could drive to DC and if I drove really, really fast, I might make it. Funny guy...
Thanks for the warning of how things are now. I wont talk directly to any of the landing crew, unless it’s just to say HI Anything negative, they may feel ‘threatened!.
Remember,you can’t keep her after Skool!
She looks sad.
Same happened to me in Vegas when my flight was cancelled because of a Hussein visit.
The obnoxious a-holes got to stay at the Motel-6 where as my polite self got to spend the night at the South Point Resort with a dinner voucher and a 500 dollar voucher for the two of us from Southwest for any future flight.
The one and only time I had ever been happy about the Obama.
Northwest out of PWM, friendly. Detroit? Hostile, dishonest, lazy.
