A male Spirit Airlines employee was suspended following a physical altercation between the Spirit employee and a female traveler that was captured on video.
The Spirit representative also got into a shouting match with other passengers who tried to intervene and break up the original confrontation. All caught on video!
The Dallas Morning News reported that a gate agent for Spirit Airlines at DFW International Airport has been suspended after a viral video showed him in a violent altercation with a traveler.
An airport police report identifies the agent as Emmanuel Sullivan of Grapevine and the woman as Ayriana Davis of Fort Worth,” reported Matthew Griffin.
“Our vendor at DFW has suspended the agent. Spirit Airlines does not tolerate violence of any kind, and we are working with local law enforcement to investigate this matter,’ the airline wrote in a statement.”
“The video posted to Twitter shows Sullivan yelling at Davis in the airport, telling her not to touch him,” said the report. “‘You touched me first and then you got in my face,’ Sullivan said in the video. ‘Don’t ever invade my personal space.’ ‘Get out of my face!’ Davis screamed in response. She later said cameras saw the altercation and that the agent touched her. Davis shoved Sullivan and called him homophobic and racial slurs, then reached out to hit him. Sullivan responded by running at her and hitting her as bystanders intervened.”
