32-year-old Clinay Cameron was on an incoming Southwest Airlines flight to the Nashville International Airport Friday night. As the plane was taxiing to Gate 5, passenger Jessica Peith was using her phone normally when Cameron suddenly began to scream and tell other passengers that “she has a red screen on her phone!” and they were all in danger and not safe. Off-duty Metro Nashville Police Officer Daniel Russett happened to be sitting behind the woman on the phone. Several passengers assisted Cameron back to her seat. As Jessica began to exit the plane, Cameron blocked her way and became verbally aggressive and abusive and had to be separated by flight attendants. Once escorted from the plane, Cameron was charged with assault for placing the victim in fear and resisting arrest as she ran from multiple officers and back onto the ramp until she was eventually able to be detained with the assistance of multiple officers.
Clinay J-L Cameron was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on June 16th, charged with resisting arrest and assault. She is free on a $4,000 bond.
