27-year-old Elizabeth Silva was jailed late Sunday night after being deboarded from her flight due to being intoxicated. When police arrived at the gate, they spoke with Silva; she was distraught, crying and repeating herself multiple times. Officers detected the odor of alcohol on her and noticed she was unbalanced and slurring. She repeatedly refused to leave the secure side of the airport and raised her voice at the officers when they advised her to do so due to her being deboarded. At this point, officers determined Ms. Silva could not care for herself, and she was placed into custody.
