Passenger arrested after punching mother in face because children were kicking her seat
Children kicking back of seat leads to assault.
Daydrena Jaslin Walker-Williams, 29, is reported to have told the mo ther, Nataly Hernandez, to stop her children from kicking her seat during the flight.
Walker-Williams claims that the mother ignored her many requests and had hit her “on the shoulder” after one such request.
Upon landing at Portland International Airport, Walker-Williams removed her luggage from the overhead bin and punched Hernandez two to three times in the face.
According to reports, Hernandez was left with a bleeding lip and lumps on her head.
In an affidavit of probable cause, Walker-Williams admitted to hitting Hernandez instead of telling a flight attendant as her “first reaction was to fight.”
When police officers arrived at the scene, she reportedly said to them, “You do what you got to do.”
The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office has charged Walker-Williams with felony assault in the fourth degree and harassment.
