According to NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth, Pete Rose and his fiancée Paula had been planning the trip to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico for almost six months, but their long awaited vacation ended up unexpectedly at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

The couple and their four children made the first leg of the trip from Bradley International Airport in Hartford County, Connecticut, with no problems and arrived at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport for their connection to Mexico, thinking the hard part of getting through security was over, telling NBC Connecticut Responds, “you’re so relaxed when you’re traveling. As far as we were concerned, we were done– we were in Mexico.”

That relaxed feeling disappeared in an instant when, Pete said, an American Airlines gate agent pulled his passport away from another agent and told him he would not be permitted to fly.

When asked for an explanation, Pete said, the agent said, “Your passport’s been mutilated.”

The family said they asked the agent repeatedly for a supervisor and were told he was busy. Pete said he was directed to another gate across the terminal where the supervisor was checking in another flight and he ran over. He said the gate was empty when he arrived.

With the plane to Mexico long gone, Pete and his family found themselves stranded in Dallas. They waited for two nights at a local hotel before paying extra to fly back home to Connecticut. Making matters worse, Pete didn’t have any of his clothes, shoes or toiletries, because his checked bag had flown to Mexico.
