Tiffany McLemore has been identified as the woman who was part of a wild viral video that showed her attacking a man on board an American Airlines flight. The man, who was hit over the head with a laptop during the dispute, was her husband Guillermo Ocampo.
According to the Miami Herald, McLemore became “enraged” because her husband was “ignoring” her.
During a verbal altercation where McLemore was berating her husband, flight attendants attempted to relocate him to another seat. As he made a move towards the front of the plane, McLemore followed behind and that’s when she launched the laptop at his dome. The laptop bounced off and struck a flight attendance.
Here is the wild scene.
Heavy.com did some digging on McLemore and discovered her Facebook page which says she is from Long Beach, California and is a manager at the International Bully Kennel Club which specializes in training anti-social and short-tempered (HA!) dogs.
Despite assault being captured on camera and plenty of witnesses on the plane, McLemore was not arrested.
According to her husband, the couple was traveling back from Ecuador to Los Angeles. He did not provide police with an official statement and said that he did not want to press charges. Along with her husband, the flight attendant nor the passengers who were hit by the bouncing laptop decided to provide statements.
“If there’s no statement, we are not able to move forward with the case,” a Miami-Dade Police Department spokesman told the paper.
American Airlines also commented on the situation saying, “Prior to departure from the gate on Sunday at Miami International Airport, two passengers who were traveling together were involved in a dispute. Law enforcement was requested, and both passengers were removed from the aircraft. We thank the American crew who worked quickly to diffuse the situation. Their actions resulted in a safe environment for all of our passengers.”
