Who did Patricia Cornwall play in Baywatch?

Patricia Cornwall, previously known as Patty Breton, appeared as Petra on an episode of Baywatch, which aired in September 1996.

The episode, called The Contest, was in season 7 of the popular drama.

In the same year, Patty also had a one-time appearance on Married… with Children.

What happened on Delta Airlines flight?

According to federal court records, Cornwall was trying to return to her seat from the restroom when a flight attendant with a beverage cart blocked the aisle.

She was asked to find a vacant seat and wait for the beverage service to finish, to which she snapped back, asking: “What am I Rosa Parks?”

The man in the video, a fellow passenger, found this comment inappropriate andtold her that she “isn’t black … this isn’t Alabama and this isn’t a bus,” according to the affidavit.

The two then started shouting at each other, with Cornwall telling the man to "mask up" and him repeatedly responding “sit down, Karen!”

In the video, Cornwall is seen slapping the man and spitting on his face, to which he responds “You’re going to jail!”

Police arrested Cornwall at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and she was later taken into custody.
