“During the de-boarding process, Mr. Vela asked (Rubio) for permission to take her photograph and subsequently took her photograph,” the lawsuit states. Rubio “became irritated, abusive and violent” and approached Vela with her two companions.Vela offered to delete the image, but Rubio “ripped the camera away” and kicked him in the groin area with her knee, the lawsuit alleges.While “visibly in pain,” Vela pleaded with Rubio to return the camera that contained images of an event in Miami that he planned to sell to a “willing buyer,” according to the lawsuit. Instead, “She ignored Mr. Vela’s plea and kept the camera,” the lawsuit states.The lawsuit, filed by Houston attorney Ivan Capellan of Hightower, Russo & Capellan, seeks $75,000 in damages.Capellan also applied for a temporary restraining order that would prevent Rubio from damaging, destroying or altering the camera while it is in her possession.
