Shamanika Howard, 36, was taken into custody in connection with a battery reported at the Delta Air Lines ticket counter at Indianapolis International Airport on Tuesday, according to Fox59 News.
Howard said she smacked the employee because, ‘God told me to,’ according to officers with the Indianapolis Airport Police Department (IAPD).
IAPD officers responded to a call for assistance at the Delta Air Lines ticket counter on Tuesday, around 10.25pm Eastern.
Howard was at the scene when police arrived, they said.
Howard was told by a Delta worker that the counters were closed so she would not be able to purchase a ticket at that time time, police said.
According to police, Howard said she smacked the employee because, ‘God told me to.’
‘Howard lifted her hand and hit her on the side of her head, behind her ear,’ read the probable cause affidavit for the arrest, according to ABC News.
