Two female passengers were arrested at Miami International Airport after a fight with an airline employee followed by a confrontation with cops caught on camera.
Cellphone footage provided to NBC 6 Miami by news site Only In Dade shows the two unruly women being cornered by police on Tuesday.
One of the arrestees sporting bright pink hair is seen kicking and trying to crawl on his stomach while shouting “let me go!” at the top of his lungs.
The other woman is lying face down with her hands tied behind her back.
The incident leading up to the chaotic arrest happened around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday at a Frontier Airlines ticket counter, where an airline employee informed the two women that they could not board their flight to Atlanta because they had 45 minutes late.
A verbal argument ensued and then turned violent when Makyan Mercer, 20, allegedly threw a plastic sign holder at the Frontier staff member, leaving her with a cut to her face, according to a quoted arrest report by station.
Officers at the scene arrested 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 shouting at the police “don’t touch her!”
Mercer was incarcerated in Miami-Dade County Jail for aggravated assault, violently resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.
Negash was arrested for violently resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
The two women, both from Durham, North Carolina, were released from jail after posting $500 bond each.
They are due back in Florida court on February 23.
