Two women named Mercer and Negash have been arrested after they engaged in a brutal brawl at the Miami International Airport over missed boarding. According to the report, they engaged in a brawl with an airline worker and then was followed by a clash with the cops.
The New York Post has the details of the brawl and arrest;
Cellphone footage that was provided to NBC 6 Miami by the news media site Only In Dade shows the two unruly women being pinned down Tuesday by police officers.
One of the arrestees sporting bright pink hair is seen kicking her feet and trying to crawl away on her stomach while screaming “Get off of me!” at the top of her lungs.
The other woman is lying face down on the floor with her hands restrained behind her back.
The incident that preceded that chaotic arrest took place around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday at a Frontier Airlines ticket counter, where an airline employee informed the two women that they could not to board their flight to Atlanta because they were 45 minutes late.
A verbal argument ensued and then escalated to violence when 20-year-old Makyan Mercer allegedly hurled a plastic sign holder at the Frontier staffer, leaving her with a cut on her face, according to an arrest report cited by the station.
Police officers at the scene detained Mercer, after which the second woman, 21-year-old Janaeah Negash, allegedly tried to interfere with the arrest by positioning herself between Mercer and the cops.
The arrest report quoted Nagesh as screaming at the police, “Don’t touch her!”
