The flight attendant lost two teeth, according to the flight attendant’s union, the Sacramento Bee confirmed this week. She was treated at Scripps Memorial Hospital in San Diego. The flight attendant’s eye was also reportedly injured.
The incident happened as the flight was preparing to land at San Diego International Airport, at about 8:55 a.m., KSWB-TV reports. The Bee reports the passenger was seated in the back row of the plane.
Quinonez was booked into the Las Colinas Detention Facility on a charge of felony battery causing serious bodily injury. She was released the same day on $35,000 bond, the Bee reports.
The woman who recorded the attack told KTXL-TV that it was the flight attendant who provoked the incident.
