Drunk, belligerent woman removed from flight diverted to MSP [VIDEOS]

This woman's bad behavior forced a pilot to make an unplanned pit stop at MSP.
A Friday night Baltimore-to-Salt Lake City flight was diverted to MSP so authorities could remove a drunken, belligerent woman who was threatening to "f**king kill" another passenger who rejected her sexual advances.

A woman named Luz Dinorah Padró filmed the mayhem with her phone camera from inside the plane and later uploaded footage to YouTube. According to her account of events, the woman made a pass at another passenger "after having a few drinks."

Rebuffed, the woman later "raised her first in trying to hit him," Padró wrote on YouTube.

Padró's first clip shows the woman screaming and issuing barely intelligible profanity-laden threats:



A second shows the woman, now calmed down, being escorted off the plane by authorities:



Reached for comment this morning, MSP spokesman Patrick Hogan said he doesn't know the woman's name (Update -- she's been identified as 34-year-old Portland resident Brandi Kristine Poulsen) and isn't sure whether the TSA or FBI has charged her with any crimes. A voicemail left with MSP police seeking more information wasn't immediately returned.

Hogan said his understanding of what went down is essentially the same as what Padró wrote on YouTube, but added that the woman laid her hands on other passengers, "grabbing at" them.

Asked how often incidents of this sort occur, Hogan said, "It's pretty rare, but it does happen."

"There are a lot of people who drink when they fly and for some people that can lead to problems," Hogan told us. "But there are about 100,000 people who pass through MSP every day and it's very seldom we have a flight diverted."

Really, they couldn't have just restrained her? The TSA needs to be replaced by a private company that uses common sense, and doesn't hassle the innocent!

Are we all sure that she actually wanted to have sex with this man? Call me the finger pointer...but, I don't think she even likes dudes.

I'm the man she hit on; and I have to say, it happens all the time to me on planes, trains and automobiles....

I applaud the other passengers who appeared so calm and tolerant of this women's behavior on the video. I hope her inability to hold her liquor didn't cause any of them to miss a connecting flight.

Ironic that she was headed to Utah, drunk. Utah is know for it's dry-state approach.

Damn! So drunk she hit on a man huh. She's really going to be embarrassed when her hangover wears off and she has to explain this to her girlfriend.

Thank goodness that didn't happen out over the Pacific.  I've been on the 12-hour flight to Tokyo and there aren't a lot of available airports after the first few hours.

It's the dreaded "seat near the bathroom" that gave her potty mouth.

Thank you for the clarification. Volume wasn't working on my phone and I couldn't tell if that was a woman.

Planes should have a special holding cell for these instances instead of diverting the plane

The rest of the headline should have read "...where she fit right in"

hmm I sense you've never been to Utah.  They have some of the best beer in the country.  Also look it up goofball there is no dry counties.  Way to talk out of your arse.  There's more dry places in Minnesota than Utah.

It looks like our own MB, but it can't be her. This woman was hitting on a white guy. MB only likes BBC.
