Officials with American Airlines say the woman attempted to open the forward boarding door and physically assaulted, bit, and caused injury to a flight attendant.
“For the safety and security of other customers and our crew, the individual was restrained until the flight landed in CLT and could be met by law enforcement and emergency personnel,” says American Airlines.
The woman reportedly had a mental health episode, according to sources. Officers with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and health care providers with MEDIC met the aircraft on arrival. Emergency personnel boarded the aircraft after other customers deplaned to provide treatment and transport the customer to a local hospital for evaluation, according to a news release from American Airlines.
Officials say the customer has been placed on American’s internal refuse list pending further investigation.
