A flight attendant lost two teeth in an assault by a passenger last weekend on a Southwest Airlines flight, according to a PBS News Hour article from the Associated Press.

The incident occurred the morning of May 23 after a flight from Sacramento, CA, landed in San Diego, a Southwest spokesman stated. The female passenger and the flight attendant were not identified, according to the article. The flight attendant was treated at a hospital and later released.

The Federal Aviation Administration said airlines have documented 2,500 incidents of unruly passengers this year, including 1,900 cases in which passengers refused to wear face masks, the Associated Press reported.
