Unruly women arrested for Delta facemask altercation.

 

A physical alteration occurred on an Atlanta-bound Delta flight when a female passenger confronted an older man over his refusal to wear a mask on the plane.

 

In a video posted online, the woman, who is not wearing a mask herself, can be seenΒ repeatedly telling the 80-year-old man to put his facemask on.

 

“You’re a … Karen. Sit down,” he responds.

 

As two flight attendants plead for the lady to return to her seat, she punches the seated man in the face.

 

“Now you’re going to jail. That’s assault. You’re going to jail as soon as we get to Atlanta,” he says.

 

The woman also appears to spit in the man’s face, before she is escorted to the back of the plane by other passengers.

 

The unruly passenger has since been revealed asΒ Patricia Cornwall – a one-time Raiders cheerleader and former small-time actor with a role in “Baywatch.”

 

Cornwall, whose stage name is Patty Breton, was charged with assault on Monday.

 

According to the affidavit, when the flight attendant asked Cornwall to find a vacant seat, she snapped back, “What am I, Rosa Parks?”

 

The elderly man in the incident reportedly responded to Cornwall, telling her she “isn’t black … this isn’t Alabama and this isn’t a bus.”

 

This is the second time in as many weeks an unruly passenger has compared themselves to Rosa Parks.

 

Earlier in December, a Florida man banned from United for wearing a thong as a facemask compared himself to Parks as he was escorted off the plane.

 

Police arrested Patricia Cornwall upon arrival at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and she was later taken into custody by the FBI.

 

“This disturbance led to the injury of fellow passengers and Delta employees. Based on the statements gathered and visible evidence, officers detained Ms. Cornwall and contacted the on-call FBI agent. … FBI agents responded and took custody of Ms. Cornwall,” police said.

 

In a statement, Delta said: “Flight 2790 from Tampa to Atlanta was met by law enforcement after an unruly customer disturbance during flight. Situations like these are rare for the vast majority of our customers and Delta has zero tolerance for unruly behavior at our airports and aboard our aircraft.”
