Woman detained after polishing nails on flight

March 6, 2012 (WLS) — A California woman was taken into police custody after a dispute on a plane over polishing her nails.

Jeanie Daniels was on a Southwest Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Houston last weekend. She was seated and painting her nails. A flight attendant asked her to stop, so she moved to the bathroom to finish.

I said, ‘I’m sorry, I apologize,’ and put it away.” Daniels said. “That’s when I discovered I only had two nails left to paint, so I thought if I went in the bathroom and did it, I wouldn’t offend anyone.”

Daniels and the flight attendant reportedly got into an argument when she exited the rest room. The employee claims the passenger used a curse word. After landing, Daniels was handcuffed and kept in jail for more than ten hours.

An abusive language charge was dismissed by a judge. Southwest Airlines has not commented.
