Watch: Woman thrown off flight and jailed after spitting at young child

FOOTAGE OF a woman spitting at a young child before being ejected from a flight bound for Las Vegas has surfaced online.

The woman, who was allegedly drunk, was captured spitting in the direction of a young child sat in front of her, mid-way through an expletive-laden rant.

The Mirror has identified the woman as 32-year-old Valerie Gonzalez.

According to their report, the incident began when Gonzalez became upset after discovering she would be sat next to a three-year-old child.

Footage captured by Orlando Alzugaray on Twitter shows the moment she aims a spit at the person sat in front of her before asking aloud: “What did I do?”

The child’s mother can then be heard saying, off-camera, “Did she just spit on you?” before a child can be heard replying: “Yes.”

Realising she is about to be ejected from the flight, Gonzalez begins to pack up her things before shouting at her fellow passengers: "F**k you all. Enjoy yourselves in Vegas, I'll be there in an hour."

The incident took place on a JetBlue flight bound for Las Vegas from Florida last Thursday, February 14th.

According to arrest reports obtained by the Irish Mirror, the woman hit airline staff and, at one point, even attempted to return to the flight.

She also spat at police officers, telling them: "I’m not sitting next to a f*****g three-year-old, I’ve been drinking all day."

The 32-year-old was taken into custody but refused to work or comply with any commands, meaning a wheelchair, leg restraints and even a spit mask were required to remove her from the terminal.

After a night in North Broward Bureau jail she was charged with battery and had a $1,000 - about £770 - bond was placed on her.
