SW Passenger Punches Cop for Telling Her She Couldn’t Fly With Dog

SW Passenger Punches Cop for Telling Her She Couldn’t Fly With Dog
Ryan Boyd

After Evian Gabrielle Villegas was informed by gate agents that she did not have the necessary documentation for bringing her dog aboard a Southwest Airlines flight, the 29-year-old allegedly punched a member of airport security and spit on him before being arrested.

According to Southwest’s pet policy, “We maintain the right to refuse acceptance of a cat or dog exhibiting aggressive behavior or any other characteristics that appear incompatible with air travel.”

    Wouldn’t that be proof that she needed an emotional support animal?

    I think the dog needs an Emotional Support Human to recover from having to live with her.

    Spat on a officer, how uncouth, censor her from Southwest.

    99.9% probably a fake ESA human owner, about time these inconsiderate self-entitled fliers were rained back and either leave animal at home or pay like they are meant to.

    That’s one way to try get them to change their minds about allowing the dog on board…
