Mother is arrested after complaining that her teenage daughter's chair was covered with VOMIT after boarding a border flight from Las Vegas
- Rosetta Swinney was in Las Vegas for Easter with her 14-year-old daughter
- The couple boarded a delayed Frontier Airlines passenger plane to Raleigh-Durham
- Mrs. Swinney's daughter complained that her chair was covered with vomit
- She claims that she was arrested after complaining about cabin crew clutter
A woman was arrested and her young daughter was placed in pre-trial detention after she complained about vomit in her seat in a passenger plane that left Las Vegas.
Rosetta Swinney, 53, was on a flight with her 14-year-old daughter to Raleigh-Durham when she complained to the staff about the condition of her seat.
Mrs. Swinney told Frontier Airlines staff that her daughter's chair was in vomit.
This is when Rosetta Swinney, 53, is arrested and removed from a Frontier Airlines plane after she complained that her 14-year-old daughter's seat was covered in vomit.

The plane was already delayed and Mrs. Swinney claimed that cabin crew wanted to separate her from her daughter and send them to the other side of the jet while the seat was being cleaned.
However, the airline claims that it was forced to remove Mrs. Swinney and her daughter from the plane when Mrs. Swinney became disruptive.
Mrs. Swinney told ABC News: & # 39; What really hurts me is that my child gets fascinated and taken away from her. Twelve hours ago I was in prison. Twelve hours. & # 39;
Mrs. Swinney and her daughter had attended the Easter vacation in Nevada at a wedding.
She said she did not respond until her daughter saw the vomit-covered seat.
She continued: & # 39; She jumped up to say mommy! My hands are wet. She smelled it. She says, "This is vomit, mother." So we went to watch. It was on the bag, all over her shirt, her hands. & # 39;
Mrs. Swinney said she confronted the flight attendant with her failure to clean the seat.
The airline denies this and claims that Swinney has become offensive and this is when the crew called for a backup of the airport police who arrested the 53-year-old passenger.
Frontier Airlines said they were trying to help Swinney and her daughter before the arrest
Mrs. Swinney added: & I felt humiliated. I felt even worse that my child had to see that I was fascinated and taken away from her. & # 39;
After her arrest, Mrs. Swinney is confronted with an offensive prohibited access.
She will appear in the Las Vegas court in June.
According to Frontier Airlines: & # 39; During boarding flight 2066 from McCarran International Airport (LAS) to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) last week, two passengers told the stewards that vomit was present in their seat.
& # 39; The flight attendants apologized and immediately invited the mother and her teenage daughter to go to either end of the plane so that the seating area could be cleaned. The mother and daughter were also told that once boarding was completed, other seats would be available, if available.
& # 39; The daughter was also offered cleaning products and was invited to use the toilet for washing. The mother was dissatisfied with the reaction and became disruptive. As a result, the flight attendants decided that the mother and daughter would be deported and transferred to another flight.
& # 39; The mother refused and law enforcement was called according to the procedure. Law enforcement then asked everyone to flee so that the mother and daughter could be removed, allowing the aircraft to be boarded and departed again. We apologize to our passengers for the inconvenience caused by the delayed departure time. The safety of passengers and crew is of paramount importance to Frontier. & # 39;
