According to a report from USA Today, a woman was arrested at Dallas Love Airport on Saturday after she punched a Southwest employee in the head as she was being ejected from the plane.

The report states a punch in the head from the woman who was arrested sent the Southwest employee to a local hospital where their condition was initially listed as stable.

The report states, "According to the Dallas Police Department, the passenger boarded the flight at 12:40 p.m. on Saturday and had a verbal altercation with an operations agent after being asked to exit the plane. As the passenger was exiting, she allegedly had another verbal argument with a different Southwest Airlines operation agent, who, according to Dallas police, the passenger then punched in the head."

The report notes the victim was released late Saturday and the unidentified attacker "taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault, according to the Dallas Police Department."

Earlier on Sunday, The Mercury News reported another altercation involving another Texas woman who was just charged with "assaulting a flight attendant during a United Airlines flight from Alaska to San Francisco International Airport earlier this year."
