Three women are facing battery charges after authorities say they attacked Spirit Airlines employees at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Tuesday evening.

Part of the incident was captured on cellphone video and was sparked after a flight delay.

The arrest report says BSO deputies arrived at the Spirit Airlines gate where a disturbance was taking place.

Broward Sheriff Office deputies say Danaysha Akia Cuthbert Dixon, 22, Kaira Candida Ferguson, 21, and Tymaya Monique Wright, 20, all from Philadelphia, “intentionally struck Spirit Airlines employees with phones, shoes, full water bottles, and metal signs.”


One of the women arrested is also accused of stealing a phone from one of the Spirt employees, investigators said. Authorities said they found the phone inside a backpack.

The women were taken into custody and were transported to the Broward main jail.
