A woman reported to be a niece of former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was arrested on Thanksgiving morning after allegedly causing a disturbance on an airplane and injuring six deputies.

Captain Jason Rivarde of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Fox News that Shannon Epstein was arrested at approximately 6 a.m. that morning after being removed from a plane at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. According to, Epstein is Christie’s niece and the flight was headed to New Jersey. 

“She was removed from the flight after causing a disturbance which included asking a family she believed was Latino if they were smuggling cocaine,” Rivarde said in an email to Fox News. “When deputies initially made contact with her on the jet bridge, she became extremely combative. During her arrest, she injured 6 deputies, biting one and kicking another in the groin.”
