A woman seen in a viral video striking and spitting at a passenger for not wearing a mask on a plane once had a role in the 1980s TV drama Baywatch.
Patricia Cornwall, who used the stage name "Patty Breton," was charged with assault on Monday for slapping and spitting on a passenger who she was berating for not wearing a mask on a Delta flight from Tampa, Florida, to Atlanta, Georgia.
Cornwall asked a flight attendant for help finding her seat on the plane when she was told to find a vacant seat until she could be helped, according to an affidavit.

“What am I, Rosa Parks?” Cornwall said in response to the service from the flight attendant. The victim, a man sitting in an aisle seat, did not appreciate Cornwall's remark and chimed into the conversation.
He reportedly told her that she “isn’t black … this isn’t Alabama, and this isn’t a bus,” according to the affidavit. The quip prompted the altercation, which was caught on video in full and led to Cornwall's arrest on the flight.
The video shows Cornwall standing over the victim, telling him to "put your f***ing mask on."
She then tells him to "stand your a** up," to which the man replies, "Sit down, Karen."
A third passenger approaches Cornwall, who is not wearing a mask herself, and asks her to "mask up." Cornwall then slaps the unmasked man in the face as flight attendants and other passengers try to deescalate the situation.

Cornwall posted a $20,000 bond at her arraignment, the New York Post reports.
In the 80s and 90s, Cornwall had roles in Baywatch, Married … with Children, and Playboy: Cheerleaders. She was also a member of the Raiderettes cheerleading squad for the then-Los Angeles Raiders football team, according to the New York Post.
She has recently worked as a Realtor in California and has an active profile with Coldwell Banker Realty.
