A Spirit Airlines passenger who was allegedly incoherent and stumbling was removed from a plane by Las Vegas Police on July 6th. Here is video of the incident.

From the YouTube poster:

Something was obviously wrong with this particular individual from the second she got on the plane. I first saw her at the ticket counter endlessly arguing with the desk clerk about baggage fees. Then once on the plane, she was stumbling all around and needed help walking to (finding?) her seat. She then started yelling that it was the “Jesus Plane” among several other barely-coherent statements. She exhibited generally wacky behavior and everyone groaned at the possibility of having to fly with her.. When flight attendants began asking her to come talk to them off the plane she refused, citing “discrimination.” After 10-15 minutes of different flight attendants pleading with her to exit the plane (and her ignoring them and refusing to move), Las Vegas PD boarded and forcibly removed her. You can tell by the crowd’s reactions whose side we were on, as nobody wanted to spend a 2.5 hour flight with a loud, rambling, incoherent lady.

Kudos to Spirit’s flight attendants and Las Vegas PD whose efficient actions still made us take off right on time.
