‘Do You Know Who I Am?’ Chris Christie’s Niece Arrested After Airplane Meltdown

The skies are a LOT less friendly when Chris Christie's niece is flying!

  • Former NJ Governor Chris Christie’s niece was kicked off of an early morning Thanksgiving flight from New Orleans to New Jersey after becoming violent, belligerent, and racially harassing fellow passengers.
  • 25-year-old Shannon Epstein injured six sheriff’s deputies – biting one – and asked a nearby Latino family if they were “smuggling cocaine,” according to Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Jason Rivarde.
  • Epstein was so belligerent and violent, she needed to be handcuffed from a wheelchair and removed from the area. She was arrested and released on $10,750 bail, and is due in court on January 23rd. Christie and Epstein have not yet commented.
