Patricia Cornwall who stage name is Patty Breton has been identified as the woman caught on video slapping a passenger aboard a Delta flight last week, December 23. She was a one-time NFL cheerleader and former small-time actor with a role in “Baywatch.”
Cornwall recently worked as a realtor and received a real estate license in California in 2013, which expired in 2017. She has an active profile with Coldwell Banker Realty that lists her as an agent. “I have been practicing residential real estate for 13 years in Los Angeles/Westside,” she wrote in a recent online posting seeking a roommate in Florida, where she hopes to relocate permanently.
According to her IMDB profile, Breton has in the past appeared in small televisions roles like in an episode of “Baywatch” in 1987 and had a role on “Married… with Children” in 1989. The actress was also featured in “Playboy: Cheerleaders.” In the early 1990s, she was also a member of the Raiderettes – the cheerleading squad for the then-Los Angeles Raiders.
Patricia Cornwall Charges
Police arrested Cornwall at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and she was later taken into custody by the FBI. She posted a $20,000 bond at her arraignment. A judge ruled that she can only fly to return home to Los Angeles.
She was charged with assault on Monday, Dec 27 for a wild mid-flight tirade that went viral on social media. According to a federal criminal complaint filed in Georgia, the fracas erupted on a flight from Tampa, Florida to Atlanta. The affidavit reveals that she was trying to return to her seat from the restroom when she asked a flight attendant with a beverage cart that was blocking the aisle for help finding her seat.
The flight attendant asked Cornwall to find a vacant seat until the beverage service was complete. “What am I Rosa Parks?” Cornwall snapped back, according to the court docs, garnering the attention of the victim.
The man, who felt Cornwall’s comments were out of line, told her that she “isn’t black … this isn’t Alabama and this isn’t a bus,” according to the affidavit. The two then exchanged insults with the man telling Cornwall to “sit down, Karen!” Cornwall responded, “sit down pu–y,” according to the court documents.
