Should This Woman Have Been Arrested—And Held For 10 Hours—For Painting Her Nails on a Plane?(It's More Complicated Than You Think!)

Of course,there's more to the story.Really,it sounds like she was painting her nails in the bathroom after she was asked to stop in her seat because of the smell.And when she came out,a flight attendant confronted her and an argument began that resulted in her being charged with using "abusive profane language" after saying things like "Stop bitching at me."

Should she have been arrested?I'm not totally sure.If we've learned anything fromthe Alec Baldwin's Words with Friends episode on American Airlines,it's that you can't defy a flight attendant.And to keep people safe,clearly,there needs to be consequences for that.That said,jail does seem a bit harsh as opposed to,I don't know,perhaps a fine or something?But if she were really that belligerent,I suppose I could understand how it all went down.

What do you guys think?
