FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -

A brother and sister were arrested after getting into an argument with a Spirit Airline ticket clerk at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, according to Broward Sheriff's Office deputies.

The brother, Alexis Lopez, 19, is facing seven charges including battery on an officer and resisting arrest.

Deputies say the clerk called them to remove the siblings from the airport, but say they both got into a scuffle with the deputies, and at some point Alexis fell on a deputy, fracturing small bones in his arm.

The deputy was taken to the hospital and is doing OK.

It is unclear what charges Isamar Lopez is facing.
