A viral video of a woman terrorizing travelers and workers with a fire extinguisher at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Georgia has been viewed millions of times.

Around 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, a woman from Ohio ate at a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant at the airport and ran out on the bill, according to Newsweek.

Jennifer Kaye Holder, 27, of Dayton, Ohio, allegedly made her way to the Delta Airlines Gate D9. That's where she purportedly attempted to open the secured doors to a jetway but was unsuccessful because she didn't know the security code.

A Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport worker was heard telling Holder, "You can't go out that door, ma'am."

The woman screamed, "I'm from Dayton, we murder everybody every day."

The Ohio woman was then seen walking down the concourse hallway while wielding a fire extinguisher. As an airport worker attempted to get close to Holder, she was seen on video spraying him in the face with the fire extinguisher.

The man recording the video noted, "She's a terrorist."

She contemplated exiting from another gate. However, airline employees rushed to close the jetway door, and the woman sprayed them with the fire extinguisher. She then sprayed the entire gate with the fire extinguisher to the point that there was extremely limited visibility because of the thick cloud.

The man recording the video said the chemicals tasted "nasty."

In the last seconds of the video, it appeared that a police officer was running toward the suspect.

Fox 5 Atlanta reported that the woman sprayed police officers when they attempted to take her into custody. Police said that Holder continued to "behave erratically and combative, by spitting and kicking at officers."

Atlanta Police Department officers were eventually able to take the woman into custody and booked her into the Clayton County Jail after she was treated for self-sustained minor injuries.

Holder was charged with obstructing law enforcement officers, two counts of simple assault, and three counts of simple battery, according to online jail records.

Three flight attendants were hospitalized with respiratory issues from being sprayed with the fire extinguisher, according to Delta Airlines.

A Delta Airlines spokesperson said the woman's behavior was "unacceptable," and she would "not be welcome on future Delta flights."

The spokesperson added, "Delta is grateful for our people — the best in the business — who quickly addressed the evolving situation, and the first responders who ensured the safety of employees and customers following this incident."

The viral video has been viewed more than 2.3 million times on one Twitter video alone.
