Three woman bound for Philadelphia landed in a Broward County jail Tuesday evening after hurling shoes, full water bottles and bags of fast food at Spirit Airlines employees before storming the counter and throwing punches.

What caused the ruckus at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is unknown. Police reports from the Broward Sheriff’s Office say there were five victims. The extent of the injuries was unknown, but video captured by a bystander shows fists flying and employees being kicked.

All three woman were arrested on battery charges. They are Danaysha Cuthberth, 22; Kiera Fergusson, 21 and Tymaya Wright, 20. Wright was also arrested on a theft charge after police accused her of taking a cell phone and placing it in her backpack.
