Jim and Amber Marchese, formally of the Real Housewives of New Jersey were recently kicked off a flight at Los Angeles International Airport in April, Jim was arrested for allegedly attacking his wife.  Now they're suing the airline. 

The domestic violence charge has been dropped, but the Marcheses say they never should have been kicked off of their Virgin America flight.

According to NJ.com, here's what happened...

The Marcheses, who live in Colts Neck, say they never should have been kicked off the flight. They believe a flight attendant saw Jim put his hand on the back of his wife's neck and alerted the captain. Jim did put his hand on his wife's neck, she says, but only to pull her closer to tell her something private.

"It was hard to hear," Amber tells People. "So he pulled me closer so he could whisper to me so the other passengers couldn't hear us."

Jim Marchese was arrested for domestic violence and released on $50,000 bond.

The Marcheses now plan to sue Virgin America for $100 million.
