An angry woman has been arrested after a video appeared to show her physically assaulting an elderly man in a dispute over masks. She herself was not wearing her mask.
According to the Atlanta Police Department, on a Delta flight from Tampa to Atlanta, numerous passengers said Patricia Cornwall “caused a disturbance” on December 23.
When the plane arrived, police say, Ms Cornwall was arrested by FBI agents.
Atlanta Police say “This disturbance led to the injury of fellow passengers and Delta employees, Based on the statements gathered and visible evidence, officers detained Ms Cornwall and contacted the on-call FBI agent. The officers then relocated with Ms Cornwall to the domestic Atlanta Police precinct where FBI agents responded and took custody of Ms Cornwall.”
The video taken by a fellow passenger shows her standing over an elderly male passenger, seated, and telling him to “mask up”. Throughout the exchange, Ms Cornwall herself is not wearing a mask.
