LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville-based employee of Delta Airlines has been arrested after authorities say she got into an altercation with several of her co-workers at the Louisville International Airport.

The alleged incident took place on Sunday, Jan. 5, just before 10:30 p.m. According to an arrest report, representatives of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority were sent to an area of the airport where there was a report of a disturbance involving several Delta Airlines employees.

When authorities arrived, they allegedly found a female employee holding a co-worker, 29-year-old Zenaida Omengkar, down on the ground on her back, telling her to calm down.

According to the arrest report, Omengkar had been in an altercation with several co-workers before police arrived. Authorities say a Delta Airlines supervisor asked that Omengkar be escorted off the property.

Omengkar smelled strongly of alcohol, the report states. When her belongings were searched, authorities allegedly found a coat that belonged to a pilot, and several small bottles of alcohol "like those served on aircraft," according to the arrest report.

Authorities say a pilot claimed the coat, and said that it had been reported missing earlier in the day.

Omengkar was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, menacing, alcohol intoxication, fourth degree assault and theft by unlawful taking.
