Realtor Blames In-The-Air Belligerent Vaping, Flashing Incident On Flight Attendant
A realtor accused of vaping on a plane and flashing her breasts to the cabin blamed the flight attendant she cursed at for "having a bad day."
Kristin Sharp, 34, admitted she repeatedly vaped on the Allegiant Air Las Vegas-to-Honolulu flight last Thursday and fought with a flight attendant who asked her to stop. She denies, however, passenger claims that she threw a pop can at the crew member and became belligerently drunk.
"So I'm apologizing that it did happen, but it did not need to get carried to the level that it did," Sharp told Hawaii News Now. "I think he had a bad day and was taking it out on me with a bad attitude. ... I was just not happy with being treated poorly."
Sharp's boyfriend, Bryant Clark, was on the same flight. He says her interaction with the flight attendant was minor.
"She's not a criminal by any means. ... She's a sweetheart, she's a good person. She was tired. She was a little bit grumpy," said Clark. "I think that the flight attendant wasn't doing things to de-escalate the situation."
Witnesses say Sharp fell asleep after the tiff. FBI agents were called to handle the situation when the plane landed in Honolulu, but Sharp has not been charged. Officials will continue to interview passengers and crew members, however.
