A young woman was carried off a Frontier Airlines flight at Miami International Airport after she got into a foul-mouthed brawl with another passenger while boarding.
Simone Bryna Kim, 24, of Killeen, Texas, was arrested Tuesday afternoon after being carried off the flight by Miami-Dade police officers.
The plane was about to depart for Philadelphia when Kim and another passenger came face to face in the aisle.
“I am what you want,” you hear Kim say to the man. ‘I’ll beat you up. What are you trying to do?
“One thing, I’m going to rock you,” she said as she leaned around a woman trying to calm the situation to yell at the man. “If you’re real, show me what’s going on. I’m gonna beat you up with this shit, I guarantee it, I guarantee it.”
A crew member in a yellow vest can be seen asking Kim to leave, but she refused, to which the police responded. When she again refused, police asked everyone to get off the plane, according to Local 10 News.

When Kim was told she was under arrest, she started to ‘push’ [and] pull away from cops and scratched and bit some of them. She was later carried off the plane and taken to jail.
Video footage from the plane shows a group of agents escorting her off the flight. By the time they reached the end of the stairs, four officers had to carry her to the patrol car.
Officers tried to put leg cuffs on her, but when they did, she started kicking. She also nearly knocked an officer down the stairs during her struggles.
She was booked into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and was later written out.
Kim faces two felonies for assaulting a police officer, one felony for violently resisting a cop, three felonies for assaulting a cop, and another felony for trespassing.
Kim’s outburst is just one of many we’ve seen at US airports since the post-pandemic travel boom.
Earlier this month, 33-year-old Francisco Severo Torres of Massachusetts was charged with interfering and attempted interference with crew members after attempting to stab a crew member with a broken wooden spoon.

The flight’s captain radioed air traffic control to tell them that Torres had been detained by passengers, but “didn’t go quiet,” and that six people restrained him as the plane landed.
Torres had boarded United Airlines Flight 2609 in Los Angeles on Sunday, bound for Boston.
With 45 minutes of the journey to go, a cabin crew member reported that an emergency exit had been tampered with.
A flight attendant noted that the door lock handle had moved from the fully locked position about a quarter of the way to the unlocked position.
Kim isn’t the only unruly passenger. Tiffany Michelle Miles, 36, of Washington D.C., was arrested last month after she got into a fight with crew over taking too long to serve her alcoholic drink
She was arrested and charged with an airport obstruction felony, which carries a 20-year prison sentence, but it was later dropped
The emergency slide engagement lever was also set to the disengaged position, authorities said.
The crew secured the door and slide.
Another flight attendant had noticed that Torres had been seen at the door and thought he had tampered with it. The crew told the captain that he was a threat and that the aircraft should land as soon as possible.
At that point, prosecutors allege, Torres got out of his seat, approached two flight attendants standing in the aisle and used the spoon to make stabbing motions, punching a flight attendant three times in the neck before being restrained.
Last month, Tiffany Michelle Miles, 36, of Washington DC became angry after flight attendants took a long time to serve her an alcoholic drink. It was originally reported that she had attempted to breach the cockpit, forcing the American Airlines flight to make an emergency landing. She later claimed that she got up to go to the toilet.
She was charged with an offense of airport obstruction, which carries a 20-year prison sentence, but it was later dropped.
