Authorities: Woman disrupted London-to-Salt Lake City flight
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Authorities say a woman was arrested after she disrupted a flight from London to Salt Lake City and attacked a federal air marshal.
Documents filed in U.S. District Court in Utah allege that 45-year-old Sarah Beach threw coffee on passengers, overturned a drink cart and ran up and down the aisle before she was seated next to an air marshal on the Thursday’s Delta Airlines flight.
Prosecutors say she later grabbed an air marshal’s head and neck before she was handcuffed in a seat.
Beach also uses the name Sarah Cullum. She is identified as a U.S. citizen living in London.
She was expected to have a lawyer appointed to represent her Friday during a court hearing on a misdemeanor assault charge.
