DETROIT, MI – Alexandra Lynn Far, 39-years-old, of Roseville, has been charged in connection with the ethnic intimidation and assault of a 29-year-old African American Muslim woman.
On September 11, 2021, at approximately 6:25 p.m., while onboard a Spirit Airlines flight, it is alleged that Alexandra Far was profane and disruptive when she shouted a racial slur at the female victim during a verbal confrontation. When the victim attempted to use her phone to record the altercation, it is further alleged that Far struck the victim’s hand and her phone. Detroit Metro Airport police officers responded to the scene and arrested the suspect.
Alexandra Far has been charged with one count of Ethnic Intimidation, a two-year high misdemeanor, one count of Assault and Battery, and one count of Disorderly Person, both 93-day misdemeanors.
“The alleged activity of this defendant was completely inappropriate and quickly elevated to criminal activity, said Prosecutor Kim Worthy. “Racist rants have become far more common lately and we will not hesitate to take action when we can do so legally.”
She is expected to be arraigned on September 17th, 2021 in 34th District Court after 9:00 a.m.
