Camila McMillie, 25, of Birmingham, Alabama, United States has two children. They were supposed to travel via American Airlines from Alabama to New York City, New York, USA connecting at Miami International Airport in Miami, Florida on December 20, 2022.
That day, McMillie was rebooked for missing her previous flight. She checked in to her flight at gate D-39 at Miami International Airport.
While McMillie was with a female American Airlines ticket agent, her two children walked away without notice to use nearby restrooms. Upon noticing that her children were not with her, she became irate, started to scream and demanded the gate agent to find her children.
Still agitated, McMillie pulled the boarding pass reader off the wooden counter, damaging the equipment and countertop area. She continued to scream, grabbed the computer monitor and threw it at the gate agent, bruising the shoulder of the American Airlines employee.
Custom and Border Protection officers who were nearby detained McMillie until Miami-Dade Police Department officers arrived. She was arrested and charged with aggravated battery, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.
On December 21, 2022, McMillie appeared in court before Circuit Judge Mindy Glazer. The judge found probable cause for the charges against the Birmingham woman and her bond was set at $4,500.
