‘Delta Karen’ Who Slapped Elder Passenger Identified as Ex-‘Baywatch’ Actress Patricia Cornwall

The former actress, who was known as Patty Breton, was arrested after getting into an argument with a fellow passenger on a Delta Airlines flight and slapping him.

AceShowbiz -Ex-“Baywatch” star Patricia Cornwall has caught attention not for a good reason. The former actress has made headlines after she was arrested for getting into a heated fight with a fellow passenger on a Delta Airlines flight.

A video of the incident has gone viral since last week, but it’s not until now that she is revealed as a one-time NFL cheerleader and former small-time actor whose stage name is Patty Beaton. As an actress, she appeared in an episode of “Baywatch” in 1987 and had a role on “Married … with Children” in 1989. She was also featured in “Playboy: Cheerleaders”.

Patricia has been largely dubbed as “Delta Karen” on media following her altercation with an elder man on a plane from Tampa, Florida to Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday, December 23. It allegedly happened after the former actress asked a flight attendant with a beverage cart that was blocking the aisle to help her find her seat.

The flight attendant asked Patricia to find a vacant seat until the beverage service was complete. But she snapped back, “What am I, Rosa Parks?” prompting reaction from the victim, according to the affidavit.

The man, who felt Patricia’s comments were out of line, told her that she “isn’t black… this isn’t Alabama and this isn’t a bus.” In video of the incident, maskless Patricia and the man hurled insults at each other and at one point, the man told her, “Sit down, Karen!”

Patricia responded, “Sit down, p***y” and the two screamed at each other to “mask up!” She then slapped the man in the face. “You’re going to jail. That’s assault,” the man told her, before flight attendants separated the two and escorted Patricia away from the male passenger.

Patricia was arrested upon arriving at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. She was later taken into custody by the FBI and charged with assault. She was released on a $20,000 bond and a judge ruled that she could only fly to return home to Los Angeles.

Patricia has recently worked as a realtor. She received a real estate license in California in 2013, but it expired in 2017. She is currently listed as an agent on Coldwell Banker Realty.
