Newly-released body camera footage shows marketing executive Tiffany Gomas having another meltdown after being kicked off an American Airlines flight – and even warning that her father is a cop.
The July 2 incident sparked safety concerns when 38 year-old Gomas, her Goyard bag under her arm, barreled to the front of the plane and told fellow passengers she was disembarking because the aircraft wasn’t safe.
And now the new clip from a Fort Worth police officer’s bodycam shows officers about to confront Gomas as she speaks to an employee at the airport, NewsNation reported.
She sounds on the brink of tears after asking the timetable regarding the infamous flight moments after she’d had the meltdown that went viral.
‘I don’t care if I ever fly with y’all ever again, I want to know about this flight right here. Do not let that plane leave, I’m being dead serious. Do not let that plane leave.’
Local authorities then find Gomas outside the airport but in apparent steadfast refusal to leave in a second clip.
‘My dad’s a cop, f**k you, dude. F**k you’ she say before requesting the police officer, who is remaining calm, to ‘get the f**k out of my face.’
DailyMail.com has been unable to confirm whether Gomas was telling the truth about her father working in law enforcement.
The policeman simply tells her to ‘have a nice day’ which Gomas repeats back at him as the video ends.
Gomas told DailyMail.com Thursday that her life has been ‘blown up,’ since her extraordinary rant last month landed her off an American Airlines flight and in the news.
Seen in exclusive pictures for the first time since footage of the passenger accusing a ‘motherf***er’ at the back of the plane of being ‘not real,’ went viral, Gomas said: ‘My life has been blown up. It’s frightening. Things go viral and everything changes.’
The original video showed a visibly shaken Gomas telling passengers: ‘I’m getting the f*** off and there’s a reason…. I’m telling you right now that motherf***er back there is not real and you can sit on this plane, and you can die with them or not. I’m not going to.’
Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com from her home in Dallas, a recalcitrant Gomas said: ‘No one knows anyone else’s story, and no one should judge. No one knows what it’s like.’
Dressed in a fitted white tank and black leggings, her long hair slicked back in a bun, the 38-year-old owner of Uppercut Marketing which promises its clients, ‘We make you look really really good,’ stood at the door of her $1.6million property and said she was consulting a lawyer.
‘They’re staking out my house. They’re staking out my neighbors. They’re going through my mail,’ she said.
‘So much of what’s out there is inaccurate,’ she added but when asked for specifics she declined to comment further.
Passengers on Flight 1009 from Dallas Fort Worth to Orlando that day were forced to deplane after a ‘distraught’ Gomas suggested the plane was not safe, forcing staff to rescreen the aircraft.
Gomas’s meltdown was apparently sparked by an argument with a relative with whom she was traveling and whom she accused of stealing her airpods.
‘The female then started claiming the aircraft was not safe and did not want the aircraft to leave due to her believing it would not make it to its destination,’ the police report states.
‘Due to the statements the flight attendants felt the aircraft needed to be rescreened. [The airline manager] explained that the passenger was denied boarding and they wanted her escorted to the public side.’
She marched off the plane but by the time TSA officers arrived to escort her back the public side of the airport the visibly upset woman was trying to get back on.
Passengers on the plane were eventually forced to deplane and be screened through security again as a precaution.
Dallas Fort Worth Department of Safety police officers tried to speak with a ‘distraught’ Gomas but she refused to cooperate.
She was eventually escorted back to the non-secure side of the airport but, despite her earlier hysteria, made repeated attempts to come back through TSA screening and into the boarding area.
Police later found Gomas sitting on the curb outside the airport waiting for an Uber.
They issued her with a warning for Criminal Trespass, but she was neither charged nor taken into custody.
The marketing executive, who was seen clutching a $1,900 Goyard tote bag in the clip, was deemed a ‘rising star’ in 2017, when she served as Vice President of Client Services at Elevate Brand Marketing.
She now heads up her own marketing firm, UpperCut Marketing, which boasts big name clients such as Xbox, Microsoft and others, but has since locked down its public profiles.
Gomas resides in a $1.6million luxury four-bedroom property complete with a swimming pool.
She bought the home in the affluent neighborhood in January 2022 for $572,530, before renovating the entire space.
