A reminder for travelers drinking and flying: maybe do your drinking after you get on the plane. Earlier this weekend, a Minneapolis flyer was arrested when she had the police called on her for being extremely intoxicated while waiting to board a plane at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport. Not only was she not allowed to board her flight, she was also taken in to custody. The police planned to merely send her to Detox to sleep it off. But, that was not good enough for her. She was angry at being arrested, so the traveler bit and spit at the cops, resulting in possible felony charges for assaulting the police under Minnesota Statute 609.2231.
So, as a result of her Drinking and Flying caused by one too many on the last flight or in the airport lounge, this woman now may be branded a felon for life for assaulting the police. If you need a drinking and traveling attorney or know someone who needs to get out of a Minneapolis-St. Paul area Detox facility, make sure to consult a highly experienced attorney.
