Earlier this week we saw video of a 71 year old man pushed to the ground by a United customer service agent in Houston.
Apparently passengers don’t have to be onboard United flights to get beaten up.
More evidence suggestive of this theory: a woman says that she was kicked in the head by a United employee while sleeping in the Houston Intercontinental airport chapel across from gate 33A.
There’s no video, always a mistake, because that means the situation is more of ‘he said she said’ but United is taking the incident seriously enough that they’ve suspended the employee.
Lindsay Urbani had a 10 hour layover in Houston Saturday overnight enroute between San Francisco and Belize. She took a nap in the airport chapel, and says she was “woken up by someone kicking [her] in the head.”
According to Urbani, the man kicked her in the head, told her she couldn’t sleep there and rolled out a prayer rug and started praying.
She then asked again why he had kicked her.
“His response was he didn’t want me to miss my flight, to which I told him I didn’t need him to do that,” Urbani said.

The man, she says, wouldn’t provide his name but she snapped photos of him and filed a police report.
