Orlando Alzugaray shared the shocking clip on Twitter, which was filmed during the boarding of a flight from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to Las Vegas.
“Here’s a crazy (drunk) chick getting thrown off of our flight to Vegas @JetBlue in Fort Lauderdale,” said Alzugaray in the Twitter post.
According to a report by the Daily Mail, the woman who had the meltdown has been identified as 32-year-old Valerie Gonzalez.
In the video, Gonzalez can be heard complaining about her experience on the plane after “calling someone old.”
After getting on the phone with an unknown person, she states, “I didn’t do anything wrong.”
Just mere moments later, she unleashes a profanity-laden tirade after she notices that she is being filmed by other passengers.
“Oh, you wanna tape me?” she yells. “Make this viral, b**** a***!”
Gonzales then spits on a passenger who is seated in the seat in front of her before standing up and shouting. “Make this viral! You wanna make this viral, make it viral. What the f*** did I do? I called someone old cause they were?”
“Alright, I’ll get my bags. I’ll take my f***ing s***,” Gonzalez yells. ‘F*** all ya’ll.”
Prior to the video started recording, Gonzalez refused to be seated next to a toddler who was on the flight, stating that she had been drinking over the course of several hours.
“I’m not sitting next to a f***ing 3-year-old,” Gonzalez said, according to the arrest affidavit. “I’ve been drinking all day.”
She tried to board the plane again after being thrown off but was refused re-entry by a JetBlue employee. Gonzalez hit the JetBlue agent over the head.
Gonzalez was arrested soon thereafter and was booked into North Broward Bureau jail on battery charges.
