An Alabama woman was arrested for aggravated assault and disorderly conduct at Miami International Airport on Tuesday.
Camilia McMillie, 25, was caught on cell phone video throwing a computer at an American Airlines worker after she apparently lost track of her children at the airport.
She is heard in the video repeatedly yelling, “Where are my children?!”
McMillie was charged with aggravated battery, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct following the incident on Tuesday, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.
“She went into a panic mode,” a witness told WSVN. “That’s what happened.”
McMillie, of Birmingham, was traveling to New York City and checked into her flight at gate D-39 “after being rebooked for missing her previous flight.
“While the subject was with the gate agent, her two minor children walked away without notice to use nearby restrooms,” police said in a statement. “Once the subject noticed the children were not with her, she became irate and began to scream, demanding the gate agent to find her children.”
Investigators say McMillie then “pulled the boarding pass reader off the wooden counter, damaging the equipment and countertop area” and “as she continued to scream, she then grabbed the computer monitor and threw it at the gate agent, striking her in the shoulder.”
