Melissa Mendez offloaded from plane [+video]

Actress Melissa Mendez got offloaded from a Cebu Pacific plane for being "unruly" after she "punched" a flight attendant and fellow passengers.

Model-athlete Andrew Wolff, who was on the same plane bound for Mindanao, posted two videos and narrated the incident using his Instagram account.

He said:

I've seen some crazy things in my life. I regularly travel on planes for work, but this has got to be probably one of the most ridiculous things that I have experienced. A certain Filipina actress, past her prime may I add, decided to use our reserved seats on the plane. After being asked to move by flight attendants, the captain and even ground security she agreed to go to her seat (after 30mins of cursing). Kept claiming she was some sikat na star dati with initials M.M. She smelled like a beer brewery, you just knew something was gonna happen.... Anyway, half way to our destination to talk to our programmer in Mindanao, this "actress" decided to curse continually at my friend. She was given 2 warning cards by flight attendants, but didn't stop. She punched my friend and the flight attendants and had to be restrained. The captain announced: "Ladies and Gentlemen, I apologise, but we have to go back to Manila due to one unruly passenger"

This video is of the initial offloading of this lovely character... Please note 20 ground staff were used just to offload one person. Fines include 500,000pesos and 3 years imprisonment


In one of the videos, the captain was heard talking to Mendez saying she was no longer allowed to take the flight after hurting a flight stewardess.

In an advisory posted at 2 p.m. today on its official Facebook page, Cebu Pacific said Flight 5J 771 Manila-Pagadian returned to Manila shortly after take-off due to a reported unruly passenger.

The flight departed Manila at 9:20AM and arrived in Pagadian at 10:37AM on the same day, the airline company said.

Cebu Pacific did not give a name, but confirmed that the unruly passenger was offloaded from the flight. The company said they are coordinating with authorities regarding the incident.
