A drunk woman was escorted off a plane after slapping a flight attendant on her behind, police in Texas said.
The Dallas Fort Worth International Airport Police said that an American Airlines flight attendant filed a complaint against a passenger who invaded her personal space.
The incident unfolded as a flight from Dallas to Maui, Hawaii, left the gate and was preparing for take off. The flight left the gate at 3:30 p.m., but returned 15 minutes later after the passenger assaulted the employee.
Police came on board the plane and escorted the 30-year-old woman off the plane Sunday night. According to witnesses at the scene, the woman slapped the flight attendant on her behind.
During questioning, the passenger denied that anything had happened. Later, the woman admitted that she had been drinking and could have hit someone on the behind, but did not know who she assaulted.
Police did not arrest the passenger, and was allowed to continue to her destination on another flight.
