    ROMULUS, Mich. - A 22-year-old woman is criminally charged after authorities said she assaulted flight attendants and a passenger during a United Airlines flight Thursday from New York to Chicago, forcing the airplane to divert and land at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

    Did extreme fear overcome this person? Panic attack maybe? Have always suspected this is the case at times, if alcohol is not involved. Jmo.

    Though I've read other stories about this happening when someone's had too much to drink. (I'm looking at you Peter Buck.)

    Just looked up PB - non-insane automatism? Have a feeling that was 'invented' for celebrities and others with money. Pathetic - imo PB was responsible for his actions unlike RA and this gal.

    Also:

    Police said the woman may have been suffering from a medical condition. Other passengers on the plane indicated they wanted to press charges against her.

    Farquharson is charged with assaulting a flight crew member or flight attendant of the aircraft. She was taken to federal court on Friday before being transported to a nearby hospital. It's not clear when she could be arraigned.

    Wow. She came completely unhinged.

    Weird how they cuffed her and carried her off the plane though.

    I think the passengers tied her up. According to the second article in the first post she was tied with an apron, a tie and a belt.

    Well, you left your olive loaf sandwich, parachute pants and dog eared copy of "The Celestine Prophecy" in my ligustrum hedge. I will keep them for you. Maybe not the sandwich.

    Good Old Days of Commerical Aviation?

    Seems airlines should stock flights w flex-cuffs* like LEOs carry in riots, or even metal handcuffs, to restrain the unruly. Not like it's a new or uncommon phenomenon. Should paying passengers have to scramble for belts, neck ties, etc. to protect themselves against in flight violence?

    Since I first flew yrs ago, passenger decorum has gone so far

    Glad I do not have to anymore. Maybe being on a flight and getting clobbered by a drunk/drugged/just a jerk/who-ev is better than the 1960s, when a hijacker w gun would force pilot to divert to Cuba. IDK. End rant.

    I feel like some of the downhill behavior of passengers has a lot (not all of course) to do with the degradation of respect by airlines and security. We're treated like cattle, or cargo, with airlines cramming more of us in smaller spaces and charging out the wazoo for every little thing.

    It's obviously not the SOLE reason, but I think it's a big part of it. We're SO stressed out from cost and disrespect by the time we sit in our seats, it's no wonder some people snap. Ugh.
