DETROIT – A 48-year-old Detroit woman was arrested Saturday, Sept. 5 after causing a scene at a Florida airport.
Authorities took Francita Anitha Ward into custody for creating a disturbance inside Terminal 4 at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
She caused the disturbance around 2:45 p.m. last Saturday after arriving late for Spirit Flight 2101 to Detroit. Police say Ward was loud and not wearing a mask while using profanity inside the terminal in front of families and children.
Spirit refunded Ward her money and she was escorted out of the terminal. She then re-entered the terminal and continued to scream and yell.
As Ward was asked to leave the terminal she yelled several times, “take me to jail.”
