2 sisters arrested at airport for alleged assault on deputies

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:00 p.m. HST, May 03, 2013

Two Canadian tourists were arrested Thursday after they got into a confrontation with two deputy sheriffs at the Honolulu Airport while being questioned about an incident on an Allegiant Air flight from Washington.

Both of the women are sisters from Surrey, British Columbia.

Toni Schwartz, Department of Public Safety spokeswoman, said the incident occurred at Honolulu Airport’s Gate 17 at 8:20 p.m. after the airport duty manager requested sheriff deputies investigate a report of disruption on the plane.

When the plane got to the gate, Schwartz said, the pilot asked that the two women be removed and be questioned because they had been belligerent with flight attendants during the flight.

While the two deputies were interviewing the two women, one of them allegedly assaulted a deputy sheriff, Schwartz said. The woman, 21, was arrested for assault of a law enforcement officer.

While making the arrest the other female suspect, her 22-year-old sister, tried to stop the deputies from making the arrest, and was arrested for interference with government operations. The women each posted bail of $100.

Charges are pending.

Probably drinking on the flight, I saw same thing happen when I was on my last long flight guy got drunk at airport bar boarded long flight continued to drink until hostess wouldn't provide any further refills because he was obviously drunk, man got angry and rude with hostess because he thought he wasn't drunk and was being refused alcohol service, hostess took it as threatening made a scene about it, man was assisted of plane upon landing by airport security personal and charged by police. I say well that's what you get serving alcoholic drinks on planes.

Seems a lot of these problems stem from consuming alcohol on long flights.

or loading up at the airport bar before the flight. If I were boarding Allegiant, I would be tempted to get a couple of drinks too.

I must agree Allegiant is terrible. I tried their "low fare" tickets, but golly they nickle and dime you for everything. Fees to select the seats and fees to carry on a bag. Of course the check in bag has a fee, but the bad part is they limit you to 40 lbs (unlike most airlines which allow you 50 lbs). The worst part is the coach seats don't recline! They suck.

The 2 sisters are from Canada and are "Canuks" or such term to describe them. Maybe, Allie knows, as she is Mandan and that tribe's original stomping grounds ran into Canada, not only in N/S Dakota area.
