Woman pulled off Delta flight at Detroit Metro Airport

Woman refused to leave plane after boarding without ticket

ROMULUS, Mich. – It wasn't the start to Delta Flight 2083 from Detroit to San Diego Monday morning that anybody was anticipating.

Passengers had their camera phones rolling when a combative passenger had to be dragged down the center aisle and removed from the plane.

Passengers said the woman blew past the gate agent, showing no identification or ticket, and waltzed onto the plane.

When Delta personnel told her she could not stay on the plane, she refused to leave. That's when airport police were called in.

Officers repeatedly told her she had to leave, and when she wouldn't comply, they dragged her off the plane.

The woman has been arrested, and charges are pending.
