A woman is in jail after threatening to kill fellow passengers on a Southwest flight from Portland to Sacramento. The chaotic scene was captured on video that a fellow passenger sent to CBS13.
The incident began after a woman attempted to smoke in the airplane bathroom and alter the smoke detector, according to airline officials.
The man who shot the video said the woman was ordered back to her seat but began yelling irrationally, threatening to kill everyone on board, and demanding that the plane land.
He says she pushed a flight attendant and had to be physically restrained by passengers and crew for the remaining 30 minutes of the flight.
Law enforcement officers were waiting at the gate and arrested 24-year-old Valerie Curbelo on the spot.
CBS13’s Marc Thompson went to the Sacramento County Jail to get Curbelo’s side of the story.
