An Ohio woman was arrested on Tuesday after allegedly assaulting flight attendants and police officers with a fire extinguisher at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Jennifer Kaye Holder, 27, was confronted by airport personnel after allegedly leaving a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant without paying for her meal, according to Inside Edition.
The incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. on Concourse D after airport security reported that a Delta passenger was attempting to open a secured door.
Concourse D at Atlanta International Airport serves as a hub for Air Canada as well as domestic carriers such as Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, and US Airways.
In a video posted on social media, a displeased Holder is seen arguing with airport personnel about who paid for her meal.
Holder attempted to open one of the security doors before confronting a flight attendant, but was stopped by airport security.
She is later seen armed with a fire extinguisher with the hose pointed out as she approaches innocent travelers who havetily try to avoid the crazed woman.
As another airport employee approached Holder from behind, she sprayed the worker with a burst of chemicals. Following the altercation, three flight attendants reported “respiratory discomfort,” but were later cleared by emergency services.
Holder was then confronted by police while still wielding the extinguisher and spraying it at airport security, according to the police report.
“Officers attempted to make contact with the female, but she was non-compliant and sprayed officers with the fire extinguisher,” the police report stated.
Police say Holder continued to “behave erratically and combative, by spitting and kicking at officers” while they placed Holder into custody. She was evaluated for minor injuries.
The Ohioan was taken to Clayton County Jail and faces charges of obstructing law enforcement officers, two counts of simple assault, and three counts of simple battery, according to online jail records.
