Passenger Arrested After Threatening to Kill Everyone on Flight

Passenger Arrested After Threatening to Kill Everyone on Flight

A passenger on a Southwest Airlines flight from Portland to Sacramento threatened to kill everyone on the flight on Saturday after she was caught smoking a cigarette in the bathroom.

The argument escalated when a flight attendant confronted her about the smoke.

"I will kill everybody on this fucking plane", said the passenger.

Curbelo's erratic and volatile behavior leaves us wondering, what exactly was she smoking in that bathroom?

The airline explained that crew dealt with the woman until she was met by police when the plane landed.

"Our Crew in command of Flight 2943 traveling from Portland on Saturday afternoon safely landed on-time in Sacramento following an inflight disturbance".

One comment, posted by Emily Williams, claims the video was captured by her aunt, who was too scared to carry on recording. "Our Crew enforced the regulation and that was following by the passenger outburst".

The 24-year-old allegedly had to be restrained for the last 30 minutes of the flight.

She was later identified as Valerie Curbelo, 24, of Sandy, Oregon.

The station also announced that Curbelo is now booked in the Sacramento county jail for making criminal threats.

Pilots declared an emergency in order to "receive priority handling from air traffic controllers", according to a statement from Southwest Airlines. Her reaction after being forced by the flight attendant to return to her seat left the co-passengers and crew shocked.

A woman named Valeri Lucille Curbelo was arrested by personnel from the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department's Airport Bureau on suspicion of making criminal threats, according to inmate records.

Curbelo spoke with CBS13's Marc Thompson in a jailhouse interview. Her bail is set at $75,000. "It was not me", she said, a tad regretfully.
