Woman Removed From Plane After Smoking Mid-Flight Cigarette
Occurred on August 23, 2021 / Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA
Info from Licensor: "This happened on a night Spirit flight from Detroit to Fort Lauderdale. The woman was loud before take off. Talking to the woman sitting next to her, reading the safety card out loud and asking the woman next to her if her life vest is under the seat, and quizzing her on what she should do if we land in the water. She calmed down about 30 minutes into the flight. She had a drink and as we landed and waited on the runway she lit a cigarette. I wanted to film her for proof of what she did and seconds after the woman behind her told her to put it out. The flight attendants smelled the smoke and started walking around when we stopped one of them and told them where the smoke was coming from. The woman denied smoking but the flight attendants found the wet cigarette in her cup that she previously had a drink in. They told her she was in a lot of trouble and that she was going to jail. After an hour's wait, a couple of police officers came to the plane and escorted her out."
