The story begins Sunday morning while Paola Andrea Londono, her husband and 9-month-old were returning to Florida onboard a Carnival cruise ship.

Londono’s husband, Daniel Holanda, said that’s when authorities came to their cabin, told her there had been a warrant for her arrest and handcuffed her.

“My wife, she was really upset,” Holanda told CBS 4’s Carey Codd. “She was crying. They handcuff her. It’s really humiliating.”
