The airline called police about an “unruly passenger” on an inbound flight. Troopers say when they arrived they were met by a “loud and screaming” Goldklank.
Goldklank told the Boston Herald she was inappropriately touched by a male passenger sitting next to her.
About 15 minutes into the flight, as Goldklank slept, she said the man put his hands in an “inappropriate area.”
According to Goldklank, when she felt his hand, she asked him, “What are you doing?” She said the man responded, “Doesn’t that feel good?”
Goldklank said she then yelled at the man to “please leave the seat,” and the man left.
How ironic though, ND has become one of those branded with the “unruly passenger” tag that we see on their station’s newscasts.
And now everyone will think she’s batshit crazy, probably on purpose just because she’s a media type, and she’ll see first hand what it feels like to be on the receiving end of the media.
At least when the TV station she runs reports similar stories of other “unruly passengers” they might do it without making them look like crazy people. Unless they’re legitimately crazy.
Granted though there are many instances reported in the media and elsewhere about trigger-happy flight attendants that are too quick to call the cops or act so condescendingly that it only makes the passenger in question act more aggressively than they otherwise would.
