Police drags woman off airline flight for refusing to check in at gate (Photos & Video)

A video was captured of a woman being forcibly removed from a Delta flight by police officers after she boarded without complying with boarding procedure.

The Delta flight 2038, which was supposed to take off from Detroit Metropolitan Airport for San Diego, was delayed after an unnamed woman boarded without complying with boarding and baggage check procedures.

According to Rene deLambert who posted the video on YouTube, the woman was loud and kept demanding for overhead bin space.

Airport officials contacted Detroit Metropolitan Airport’s police department requesting for assistance in getting the woman off the plane and when the police officers arrived the woman refused to obey their polite request to leave the aircraft. This led to her being forcibly dragged by her wrist off the plane.

 Delta Air Lines have confirmed the incident. In a statement to FOX 2 Detroit, the Spokeswoman for the airport said that the woman has been arrested for violation of airport regulations but she has not been charged.

 "At approximately 8 this morning, Delta Air Lines contacted Detroit Metropolitan Airport's police department requesting assistance with a passenger who would not comply with boarding and baggage check procedures at a McNamara Terminal gate. 
“When officers arrived, Delta Air Lines stated the woman could not remain on board. Despite repeated requests by officers, the woman refused to leave the aircraft and had to be removed. She was arrested and charges are pending.
Passengers can be seen in the video craning their neck to watch as the woman was dragged off. One said,
"No one is gonna’ believe me if I tell them." The flight eventually took off by 8:30 a.m after calm was restored.
