    A 'drunk' woman who yelled at officers to 'shoot me' after fellow passengers zip tied her when she allegedly attacked two Spirit Airlines flight attendants on Saturday has been banned by the airline.

    The 42-year-old woman, named as Amanda Henry in court documents, was flying from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Nashville, Tennessee when the incident occurred.

    She is alleged to have punched one flight attendant and pulled another's hair during the 6 p.m. flight, according to the Tennessean newspaper.

    A passenger restrained her feet with zip ties before the plane landed, and she resisted getting into a police vehicle at Nashville International Airport, officials said. 

    The affidavit said she smelled of alcohol, spoke in a slurred manner and had bloodshot eyes. She told officers she drank 'a lot' it added.

    After being arrested by police officers, she yelled at them on several occasions, using expletives. She said 'I didn't do anything wrong' and 'shoot me,' the documents show.

    As she was being put into the police cruiser, she reportedly stiffened her legs to prevent officers from closing the door. 

    She was charged with public intoxication, the court records show, but after spending the night in jail, she was released on Sunday morning. 

    Her release came after her case was dismissed, because the flight crew involved declined to press charges, according to both court records and the newspaper.

    It was not immediately clear why the charges were dropped by the crew. The DailyMail.com has contacted the airline for comment.
