PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A 23-year-old Philadelphia woman is accused of assaulting a flight attendant aboard a plane Monday morning.

Tinicum Township Police say Philadelphia Airport Police responded around 10 a.m. for a disruptive passenger aboard a US Air flight in Terminal A in Tinicum Township.

Police say it was learned that a passenger, identified as Sasha Anderson, was removed from the plane when she became belligerent towards a member of the flight crew.

During the course of the incident, police say Anderson allegedly threw her cellular phone at the flight attendant along with slapping and scratching his face.

Police say numerous other passengers stated that they were afraid to leave the ground with the passenger still on the plane.

Anderson was charged with Simple Assault, Reckless Endangering another person, Harassment and Disorderly Conduct.
