Woman Arrested After Making Threats on Flight

Woman Arrested After Making Threats on Flight

A flight attendant said the threats started after she caught Valerie Curbelo smoking in one of the plane's bathrooms. A passenger, who shot video of the scene, told CBS Curbelo pushed a flight attendant and was physically restrained by passengers and crew for the last half-hour of the flight.

A nonstop flight from Portland to Sacramento takes roughly 1 hour 30 minutes, according to the airline's website. The witness then said the woman removed an oxygen mask from the plane as she became "more uncontrollable". "I will kill everybody on this f.ing plane!" After a flight attendant discovered what Curbelo had done, they entered the bathroom and attempted to return Curbelo to her seat.

"I don't know", Curbelo was quoted as saying.




A woman is arrested after making death threats on a plane from Portland, Oregon to Sacramento International Airport. She explained that she lit up a cigarette in the airplane bathroom to calm her anxiety, though she couldn't articulate what she was anxious about.

"The safety of our crew and passengers is our top priority, and we take all safety violations seriously", Southwest Airlines said in a statement to Business Insider.

The station also announced that Curbelo is now booked in the Sacramento county jail for making criminal threats. She remained in custody at the Sacramento County Main Jail as of Monday night. "Our Crew enforced the regulation and that was followed by the passenger outburst". The Pilots declared an emergency to receive priority handling from air traffic controllers, and our Crew handled the situation onboard until the plane landed and local authorities stepped in. Saturday's flight had 136 passengers and a five-person crew. She is being held on $75,000 bail.
