Video footage of a drunken JetBlue passenger throwing a tantrum has gone viral online.
Valerie Gonzalez was reportedly taking a JetBlue flight from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to Las Vegas on Thursday when she became upset that she was seated next to a three-year-old.
According to an arrest affidavit, the irate 32-year-old said, “I’m not sitting next to a f—— 3-year-old. I’ve been drinking all day,” Metro News reported.
Fellow passenger Orlando Alzugaray recorded the incident and shared it on Twitter, where it racked up nearly 60K views.
WARNING: Video contains strong language.
In the video, Gonzalez appears to be talking to someone via FaceTime on her phone while complaining that she “didn’t do anything wrong.”
Other passengers begin to film her conversation. At one point, she spits on the passenger in front of her who she claims is recording her.
Later, the woman shouts at passengers while gathering her things to leave the plane.
“Make this viral! You wanna make this viral, make it viral. What the f— did I do? I called someone old ‘cause they were?” she yells. “I’ll get my bags. I’ll take my f—— s—.”
According to Metro, after the woman exited to the terminal, she tried to board the plane again. A JetBlue agent prevented her from entering the plane and Gonzalez hit the employee over the head.
Gonzalez was arrested at the Florida airport and charged with battery.
