A woman who sprayed passengers and staff with a fire extinguisher at the Atlanta airport after stealing some chicken wings has been arrested.
According to AJC Atlanta officers were called to Concourse D around 9:30 p.m. about a suspicious woman, later identified as 27-year-old Jennifer Holder, attempting to open secured doors, police said in a statement.
Videos posted to social media show the woman arguing with airline staff and security before walking toward an open door at one of the Delta Air Lines gates as officials try to remove her and close the door.
She then walks back into the concourse while waving the fire extinguisher and spraying a large cloud of white powder.

When officers arrived, Holder sprayed them, too, the statement read.
Police did not say what prompted the woman’s actions, but reports say she ordered some buffalo wild wings, and did not pay for them.
When she was confronted about the food, she became upset.
Three flight attendants were taken to a hospital with respiratory complaints, according to the statement.
Police detained Holder and took her to a nearby precinct, where she continued to “behave erratically and combative by spitting and kicking at officers,” the statement read. After an evaluation for minor self-inflicted injuries, she was taken to the Clayton County jail.
Holder faces multiple charges, including obstructing or hindering law enforcement, three counts of battery and two counts of assault, according to jail records.
