It doesn’t matter if you’re the ex of the governor of Quintana Roo, you can’t leave your cell phone on when flying with Interjet.
The airline delayed the departure of a flight from Mexico City to Cancún Tuesday Dec. 22 after María Rubio, ex-wife of Governor Joaquín Hendricks Díaz, refused to turn off her phone.
When she refused to budge after the captain told her the plane would not leave until she got off, police were called. Officers of the Gendarmerie boarded the aircraft and took her into custody.
Witnesses said that Rubio was defiant to the end. “You don’t know who I am,” she was reported to have shouted at police. “I’m the ex-wife of Joaquín Hendricks Díaz. You don’t know who you’re messing with!”
She had been under surveillance before boarding because she had been shouting on her cell phone in the departure lounge.
The Cancún flight departed shortly after Rubio was removed the plane.
