29-Year-Old Woman Arrested At Miami Airport After Illegally Boarding Spirit Airlines Flight
If you’re late for your flight, would you still board by any means necessary? That’s what one woman did Sunday at Miami International Airport which resulted in her arrest.
Skylar Shiffon Pollard, a 29-year-old woman from Battle Creek, Michigan was arrested after illegally boarding a Spirit Airlines flight.
Here’s what happened:
Her arrest report states she was late to her flight from Miami to Michigan. The flight already closed for boarding, but Pollard boarded the plane after ignoring boarding security procedures, says Miami-Dade police.
After refusing to de-board the plane and go through security procedures by airline staff, Miami-Dade police came on the plane and gave her a tresspassing warning. Pollard still did not de-board the plane.
The airline had to de-board all passengers on the plane due to security risks. Pollard was then arrested and escorted off the plane by police officers.
“The incident caused delays to airport scheduling and functions,” says the report.
Pollard currently faces charges of violating a designated operational area of an airport and disorderly conduct.
