Complaint over loud music leads to 5-women brawl on flight


Los Angeles, Mar 11: In an unusual mid-air drama, a fight broke out among five women aboard a flight in the US after two of them, believed to be drunk, refused to turn down music from a 'boom box', according to the airline.

The two intoxicated women blasted music from a 'boom box' on board Spirit Airlines flight 141 on Wednesday from Baltimore to Los Angeles. When passengers complained, the loud-music lovers held the boom box in the air, Spirit Airlines spokesman Paul Berry said.

Loud music leads to brawl on flight

Authorities say five women got into a brawl before the plane landed at Los Angeles International Airport. Berry said several other customers asked the women to turn down the music, but the women refused.

Instead, the women posed a challenging question: "What are you going to do?" "Then to provoke the other customer they were holding up their boom box in the air, waving it around," Los Angeles Times quoted Berry as saying.

Then a second group of passengers approached the two women and a fight started, he said. Police were notified and met the crew when the plane landed, Officer Rob Pedregon said. The five women involved in what he called the "mutual combat situation" were pulled off the plane, he said.
