Boom box sparks brawl on flight from BWI to LAX

On a flight that orginated at Baltimore's BWI, things got unruly on the way to Los Angeles -- it was all over a 'boom box.'

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a flight on a Los Angeles-bound plane turned into a mid-air brawl over a noisy boom box.

It happened Wednesday morning aboard Spirit Flight 141 from Baltimore.

Authorities tell the Los Angeles Times that two intoxicated women began blasting music. When other passengers asked them to turn it down, they refused and instead held the boom box in the air and waved it around.

Spirit Airlines spokesman Paul Berry says that's when a second group of passengers approached and there was a scuffle.

The Transportation Security Administration stopped a woman with a pair of gun-shaped shoes and straps lined with faux bullets at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport on Sunday afternoon, officials said.

Police were notified and when the plane landed at Los Angeles International Airport, five women involved in the fight were pulled off the plane.

The FBI also was called to investigate but nobody was arrested.
