‘The arrest happened when 2289 landed in Miami (flight landed at 4:42 ET),’Chris Nguyen tweeted. ‘Passengers were ordered to put their hands on their heads for 45-60 minutes before landing. Strangely, passengers were repeatedly told not to film on the plane.’

‘I was on a flight last night and a woman was so out of control (passenger) she had to be restrained and literally duct taped to her seat – crazy screaming person – 1.5 hours of screaming – police were waiting when we landed….’ the person claimed.
