Via New York Post A woman barred from boarding a flight to the Big Apple because she appeared drunk led police on a wild chase on her motorized suitcase — before allegedly spitting at a cop and defecating in a patrol car, according to a report.
Chelsea Alston, 32, is seen in a bizarre pursuit in newly released bodycam video at Orlando International Airport, where she planned to board a Southwest Airlines flight in April 2021, WKMG reported.
But a gate agent told her she appeared too intoxicated and refused to allow her to take the flight, according to the outlet, which cited court records.
“I don’t want no beef. I’m just trying to go home and enjoy myself,” Alston reportedly said, claiming she had consumed just two drinks.
Police officer Andrew Mamone responded and told her she was banned because of her glassy eyes, inability to stand straight and the odor of booze emanating from her. …
“F— you! Suck my d—!” she shouts before taking off on her motorized luggage.
“We’re going to have a bike pursuing a suitcase in a minute,” the officer says as he chases the getaway suitcase on his bicycle. …
“Follow me, and we’ll roll out together,” Mamone tells the woman, who then appears to spit at him before he and another officer place her in handcuffs. …
“I only spit one time,” Alston replies before she was dragged to a patrol car, in which she allegedly defecated and left about $1,200 in damage, WKMG reported, citing an arrest report.
Move over Thelma and Louise, there is a new escape artist in town. Not exactly a high-speed chase. All it took was “two drinks and a motorized suitcase to turn into Jason Bourne.
Escape on ride-on power luggage? That’s a first for me, I’m pretty sure those things only go up to about 5km per hour and don’t have the best handling. BOLD STRATEGY COTTON.
It’s just incredible police work taking this dangerous fugitive down. The patience on display from this officer should get him a promotion.
