The niece of former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was likely drunk and stoned when she was kicked off a Spirit Airlines flight, showing ‘unusual strength’ and foaming at the mouth as she was fighting the cops and shouting, “Do you know who I am? ”
Shannon Epstein of New Jersey allegedly caused a ruckus on a 6 a.m. flight from New Orleans, Louisiana, to New Jersey on Thanksgiving Day, and was kicked out after acting aggressively and asking a Latin American family sitting nearby if they were “smuggling cocaine.”
The 25-year-old refused to step off the catwalk and yelled at officers who responded, according to police documents obtained by the Post.
“I heard Epstein reprimand Deputy Ducos and the two officers,” a Jefferson Parish sheriff’s officer wrote in the report. “Epstein refused to follow their lead out of the catwalk.”
“Epstein yelled, ‘Are you serious? do you know who i am? I am connected to some very powerful people and I need to take this plane back to New Jersey,” the report said.
Later, she shouted, “Do you know who I am? I’m Chris Christie’s daughter and you’re so f—-ed. You will lose your job during this s—. I know Donald Trump.
The ex-governor’s niece displayed behavior consistent with alcohol and drug use before the early morning robbery, officers said in their report.
At one point, she “break free” as officers attempted to handcuff her, forcing officers to block her way. As she struggled with it, she “was belligerent and exhibited unusual strength,” according to the report.
The niece of the former governor and failed 2016 presidential candidate “garbled her words” and “had white foam coming out of the sides of her mouth.
“Epstein punched, kicked, spat in my face and writhed as she tried to free herself from my grip,” the officer who wrote the report said. .
It was then that she again brought up her famous uncle, but claimed she was his daughter – and also said she knew former President Trump.
Epstein continued his screed against the police: “By this time tomorrow you will both be in jail. What did I do ? I am a lesbian. Is that right? Do you want to put your cock inside me? That’s it, isn’t it. That’s what it’s about ? You want to put your dick in my mouth, don’t you? You’re so fucked up, asshole.
Epstein continued to be violent after making the drunken tirade, cops said, which forced them to tackle her to the ground. She then bit an officer’s left bicep and “ripped the skin off”. She also stretched the officer’s left leg as she attempted to kick him in the groin, police said.
Officers eventually managed to handcuff her, but she continued to “struggle the handcuffs, kick, spit on deputies and attempt to break free,” according to the report. When asked if she was aware of what had happened, she replied, “I am very aware.
“You think I have cocaine in my py?” She asked, then screamed for several minutes, according to the report.
“Wow, do you like Chris Christie? He’s fucking friends with fucking Donald Trump,” she fumed.
The brash Garden State politician’s niece has been charged with six counts of assault and battery on a police officer, three counts of disturbing the peace, resisting arrest by force and arrest after ban.
She was released from the Jefferson Parish Correction Center on Thanksgiving Day after posting $10,750 bond.
She and her uncle did not respond to requests for comment from The Post.
