The FBI has arrested a 45-year-old woman for allegedly shoving a JetBlue flight attendant and trying to force open a cabin door during a flight bound to New York City from Puerto Rico.
FBI spokesman Harry Rodriguez says agents arrested Esther Perez of New York City on federal charges of interference with a flight crew.
A criminal complaint alleges the visibly agitated woman grappled with an attendant 30 minutes into the flight on Wednesday before grabbing a handle on a cabin door.
Rodriguez said the woman was quickly restrained by flight crew and passengers.
The plane had to return to Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan.
