FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A woman was arrested after causing a disturbance at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport by yelling at an airplane employee.

Sabrina Rey Thomas, 26, was caught on video Sunday climbing on the counter of a JetBlue gate while screaming at the employee after she had missed her flight. The airline claims Thomas was not allowed to board her plane because of indications she was intoxicated.

Thomas could be heard screaming "Get me out of this f-----d up place," while the JetBlue employee was on the phone. After the incident, Thomas attempted to leave the area in Concourse F.

When approached by a BSO deputy, Thomas threw her boarding pass at the officer and then ripped into pieces. Thomas refused the deputy's orders to turn around as he grasped her hands and became angry and shouted profanities when she was handcuffed.

Thomas denied using alcohol or medication when asked by the deputy.

Because of her irrational behavior, Thomas was taken to the hospital as a Baker Act patient.
