Two women were arrested Wednesday for allegedly assaulting fellow passengers and crew members on an American Airlines flight.
The plane was en route to Los Angeles from Dallas before it was diverted to Phoenix following the altercation.
Authorities say 30-year-old Kelly Pichardo and 29-year-old Leeza Rodriguez were then apprehended.
Witnesses say the women, who both hail from New York, used racial slurs when a male passenger asked them to stop.
Pichardo also allegedly spit at a man who began recording them. Rodriguez then reportedly hit the man’s hand.
Both women have been booked behind bars.
