A viral video appears to show an American Airlines passenger attack her husband after accusing him of “looking at other women.”
The incident reportedly occurred Sunday on a plane waiting to take off from Miami, Florida, to Los Angeles, California. A video posted to Twitter showed Tiffany McLemore hurling expletives at her husband for “ignoring” her, police wrote in a report obtained by the Miami Herald.
A flight attendant initially asks McLemore to watch her language as there are children on the plane, to which McLemore responds, “Yeah I know, I f**king consoled the f**king child.”

Flight attendants surrounding the couple ultimately get the husband to move his seat. McLemore was then spotted throwing a laptop at his head, amid gasps from other passengers.
The Herald reported that the laptop bounced off the man and struck a nearby flight attendant and passenger. When the captain informed McLemore that she’ll be arrested for assault, she nonchalantly replied, “Fine, whatever.”
Miami police told Fox News that they responded to the airport Sunday following reports of a verbal altercation. Officers reportedly spoke to the husband, who explained that they were en route to Los Angeles from Ecuador and expressed that he didn’t wish to press charges.
McLemore reportedly walked off after being ousted from the plane. Police told Fox that the argument stemmed from issues with her drinking.
Miami police told the Herald that the people injured by the flying laptop declined to provide a statement, preventing them from criminally charging her.
“If there’s no statement, we are not able to move forward with the case,” a police spokesperson explained.
The woman’s husband departed on a later flight while the people injured Sunday were treated and left on their scheduled flight, according to Fox News.
“Prior to departure from the gate on Sunday at Miami International Airport, two passengers who were traveling together were involved in a dispute. Law enforcement was requested, and both passengers were removed from the aircraft,” an American Airlines spokesperson told the news network.
“We thank the American crew who worked quickly to diffuse the situation. Their actions resulted in a safe environment for all of our passengers.”
