Two drunken sisters were forcibly arrested at Newark Airport Saturday after throwing a tantrum when they were told they weren’t allowed to board their flight to Ireland.
Witness video showed the distressed adult women sweep through a range of emotions before getting dragged out of the airport by cops — who they allegedly threatened during the chaotic scene.
“Can anybody help us? Please somebody help me. Please!” one of the women screamed as she jumped up and down beside the gate attendants.
The pair began acting “erratically” around 8 p.m. when they were told they weren’t permitted to board their flight to Dublin, according to a TikTok that has racked up over 680,000 views.
A blonde woman burst into tears at the realization, and her brunette sister tried to comfort her by promising that they could still make their trip to the Emerald Isle.
“I’m not going to let you down. We’re going to Dublin!” the supportive sister said.
The blonde woman identified herself as a lawyer and initially “warned the cops” that there would be consequences for not allowing them on their flight, but ultimately decided it would be best to just leave the airport.
Her sister, however, wasn’t prepared to give up without a fight.
She charged toward the gate attendants and demanded they be let on the flight “right now.”
After realizing the crew wasn’t going to relent, the woman turned to the crowd of airport travelers for help.
Her embarrassed sister tried to put her hand over the unhinged woman’s mouth to stop her from screaming after a police officer came over to calm the duo down, but neither of their efforts seemed to help.

Both women were then dragged away from the gate by police officers.
The brunette tried to resist the escort and fell to the ground, and the officer seized the opportunity to put her in handcuffs.
A spokesperson for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey confirmed that its officers responded to a “disturbance” of “two intoxicated women who were denied boarding on an Air Lingus plane.”
“Officers made attempts to de-escalate the situation, but the women disregarded their instructions,” the spokesperson told the Daily Dot.

The blonde woman was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, while her loud-mouthed sister was given a criminal summons for disorderly conduct.
It’s not clear whether the pair made it to Ireland.
