Chris Christie’s Niece Kicked Off Flight – She reportedly kicked one of the deputies in the groin and bit down on another’s arm

IJR:

Jefferson Parish sheriff’s deputies had a battle on their hands on Thanksgiving Day at Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans, Louisiana, when the niece of former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie attacked them after she was removed from a Spirit Airlines flight.

According to The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate, Shannon Epstein was set to fly out on Thanksgiving Day. At about 6:00 a.m., she boarded the flight and, before takeoff, asked a group of nearby Latino passengers if they were “smuggling cocaine.”

The flight had already taxied to the runway, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt. Jason Rivarde said. After Epstein made the cocaine remark, the plane was turned around.

The question sparked immediate controversy, and airline staff began removing her from the flight. That’s when the situation took a nasty turn.

As Epstein became increasingly angry, Jefferson Parish sheriff’s deputies were called to assist. Upon their arrival, Epstein reportedly refused to comply with their request that she exit the jet bridge. MORE

  1. The first thing I thought of was how it was pre-setup with stories about a couple days earlier about cocaine weaving wigs that was played all over the media all day and night.

  2. Not that I don’t think it was an asshole thing to say that started this, but at what point did it become illegal to say asshole but non-threatening things on an airplane?

    Seems like this whole thing was more a butthurt protected class problem than anything else, and perhaps THOSE folks should have been asked why they can’t take a stupid joke and be removed from the plane if they couldn’t, not her.

    Seriously, get over it.

  3. The cops didn’t believe her claim to belong to the protected class, and evidently that really pissed her off. It will be (mildly) interesting to see if one of the self-proclaimed elite can get away with kicking a cop in the balls.

  5. If she looks anything like Chris, it probably took a block and tackle plus three men and a fat boy to haul her off.
