WATCH: Former Playboy Model Accused of Starting Fight on Delta Flight
Former Playboy model Patricia Cornwall is accused of starting a chaotic fight on a Delta Airlines flight. A video of the altercation spread on social media, showing Cornwall telling an older male passenger to “mask up” and he repeatedly calls her “Karen.”
According to court records, Cornwall, who’s also used the name Patty Breton, was coming back to her seat from the restroom when she “encountered the flight attendant and beverage cart blocking the aisle.” The Baywatch actress asked the flight attendant to help find her seat, and the attendant asked her to find an open seat until beverage service was over, since the flight was only an hour long.
Cornwall responded “What am I, Rosa Parks?” And that’s when the fellow passenger got involved, telling Cornwall she “isn’t black…this isn’t Alabama and this isn’t a bus.”
“Sit down Karen,” the passenger told Cornwall.
“Sit down p—y,” Cornwall responded, and the pair exchanged other derogatory comments.
At that point, Cornwall hits the passenger in the face and spits on him.
Police arrested the 51-year-old at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and she was later taken into custody by the FBI.
Cornwall posted a $20,000 bond at her arraignment. A judge ruled that she can only fly to return home to Los Angeles.
