Drunken passenger assaults police, airline staff at LAX
Woman was uncooperative and combative and was dragged away "kicking and screaming"
LOS ANGELES — Authorities allege a drunken Delta Air Lines passenger assaulted airline staff and police at Los Angeles International Airport before she was arrested.
City News Service reports 32-year-old Lisa Piasecki of Irwin, North Carolina, was held at Terminal 6 by three flight crew members, who told officers she assaulted airline personnel.
Airport police say Piasecki was uncooperative and combative and was dragged away "kicking and screaming." Investigators say she was intoxicated and also assaulted an officer.
Piasecki was taken to a hospital for treatment and was arrested around 2 a.m. Thursday on suspicion of battery on a police officer and public drunkenness.
It wasn't immediately known if she has a lawyer.
