Officials say a woman attacked six sheriff’s deputies while refusing to exit a plane on Thanksgiving Day at an airport in Louisiana. The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate reported the incident on Saturday. Authorities said the 25-year-old woman bit, kicked and spit on Jefferson Parish sheriff’s deputies at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. News reports say police charged the woman with a number of offenses, including six counts of battery on a police officer and three counts of disturbing the peace. Reports of passengers’ bad behavior have skyrocketed since air travel has increased after early pandemic shutdowns.
