A woman arrested for skipping the tab at an airport restaurant accused police of harassing her because she was too “good-looking.”
Hend Bustami, 28, left a Chili’s Tex-Mex outpost at Harry Reid International Airport last Wednesday without paying her bill, news station KTLA reported.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police called to the scene found the self-described “hospitality professional” sleeping “near the security checkpoint, hindering their operations.”
Bustami was eventually arrested by the baggage claim, where an arrest report said she appeared intoxicated and was “belligerent” with officers.
Bustami claimed “‘she was being harassed because cops [had] never seen anyone as pretty as her,’” police said.
Authorities eventually learned the young woman had another outstanding warrant from Las Vegas Municipal Court. It is unclear what these charges were.
While being arrested, Bustami threatened to “‘spit on all [the officers]’” while saying that “‘officers were perverts and were trying to rape her because they [had] never seen anyone as good looking,’” according to the report.
Bustami, a 2017 graduate of the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, was booked on misconduct charges.
She is currently being held at Clark County Detention Center on $1,000 bail.
It is unclear if Bustami has secured legal representation. She is due in court on Oct. 27.
