LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - An altercation among Delta Airlines employees at Louisville International Airport led to one woman's arrest late Sunday night.

According to an airport police officer, Zenaida Omengkar, 29, was on the ground being held down by an airline supervisor when the officer arrived on the scene of the incident. The officer said Omengkar had been in a physical and verbal altercation with various Delta employees and the supervisor had asked that she be escorted off the property.

The officer also said Omengkar smelled strongly of alcohol and that she blew a .210 during a portable breathalyzer test.

A search of Omengkar turned up a coat that a Delta pilot identified as his as well as multiple small bottles of alcohol, like those served during commercial flights, the officer said.

Omengkar  is charged with disorderly conduct, menacing, alcohol intoxication, theft by unlawful taking and fourth-degree assault.
