The woman said, "No, you go right ahead and catch your flight. Ignore him because he is uneducated and he cannot tell you anything." Eventually, the officer handcuffed the man. Then, the second woman hit the officer in the chest. The officer arrested all three of them. They "continued to use profanity and questioned my penis size," the officer reported.
