I’m absolutely shocked to hear this happened on Spirit Airlines. 😉
A brawl erupted on a Spirit Airlines flight last night in Los Angeles, after the plane landed from Baltimore. The fight happened over a boombox. That’s right, a boombox. Those are still a thing?!
Here’s one video of the incident:
Here’s what happened, via CBS Los Angeles:
It all started, witnesses said, after the plane had landed and a few passengers were playing their music loudly. According to CBS Baltimore, five women were involved in the melee that began because the music was apparently being blasted on a boombox.
Other passengers asked them to turn the volume down. From there, tensions rose and the passengers came to blows.
We see passengers acting stupidly on planes all the time, but this is just next level stupid. The crazy part, though? No one was arrested:
Airport police and the FBI also arrived on the scene. No arrests were made but one person was cited.
Seriously?! We’ve seen so many instances of passengers being escorted off planes over minor disagreements, like flight attendants not liking the way passengers spoke to them. But here we have an actual physical altercation to a degree I haven’t seen in a long time on a plane, and there are no arrests?
But instead of being surprised I’ll just be amused by the fact that there are still people with boomboxes, and that those people seem to think it’s okay to play them loudly on planes.
