Video: Ted Cruz Gets into Heated Confrontation at Airport
Airport employees in Bozeman, Montana, asked police to intervene following a heated confrontation with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
A video posted to Reddit shows the Texas lawmaker engaged in discussion with two employees at a United Airlines desk after missing the check-in time for his flight.
“One of our Public Safety Officers (PSO) was in the ticket lobby and was asked to assist with a frustrated passenger at the United ticket counter (which is not unusual),” said Scott Humphrey a deputy director of Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.
“The passenger had missed the check-in window for his flight and re-booking options were limited out of Bozeman due to Spring Break.”
“Our PSO didn’t realize he was dealing with Senator Cruz until after the fact,” Humphrey added, saying that Cruz was booked on another flight and left the airport later on that evening.
