3 Face Riot Charges After Spirit Airlines Cancellations Spark AirportBrawl
Three people face charges of inciting a riot at a Florida
airport after Spirit Airlines suddenly canceled several flights
Monday night, authorities said.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office said three people were arrested at
Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport about 10:30 p.m.
after they allegedly threatened to hurt Spirit Airlines
employees. The individuals, who were from New York, screamed at
airline workers and “challenged them to step outside to fight,”
according to arrest reports obtained by TIME.
The confrontation caused a crowd of about 500 people at the
airport “to become enraged, fearful or visually upset,” the
arrest report said.
Desmond Waul, 22, Janice Waul, 24, and Devante Garrett, 22, face
several charges, including riot incite and disorderly conduct.
Authorities also say the three resisted arrest and trespassed.
An arresting officer said the "atmosphere" the three travelers
"caused was one that resembled the start of a riot."Spirit
Airlines blamed Monday’s cancellations on pilots who refused to
work amid union negotiations. The airline has canceled more than
300 U.S. flights over the last week due to disputes with the
Airline Pilots Association.
