Fla. Man Arrested After Tantrum at Airport

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities arrested a man they saw was throwing a tantrum at a South Florida airport, cursing and yelling at a ticket agent.

According to an arrest report, 30-year-old Brandon Johnson was loudly demanding to fly to Jamaica. A ticket agent at Spirit Airlines insisted that he needed a passport to do so.

The Sun Sentinel reports he refused to listen to the agent and launched into a vulgar tirade as passengers watched.

Deputies were called to the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Sunday.

Authorities said Johnson clenched his fist and cursed loudly at the deputy.

He was charged with disorderly conduct and was released from jail Monday on $25 bond.
