A flight from Nashville to Houston encountered a problem after a passenger got verbally nasty with a flight attendant.
The aircraft had left the gate when the female attendant asked 43-year-old Lashonda Williams, to power her cell phone off. That seemingly simple request set Williams off.
"She ended up telling allegedly the flight attendant whenever she was was asked to put away her cell phone as you are supposed to do when a flight is about to takeoff that "I Kill White People Like You."" [WTVF]
The arrest warrant says her threat generated feelings of ‘anxiety and fear’ through fellow passengers and staffers on the plane. With the environment onboard becoming so tense, the pilot decided to turn the aircraft around and head back.
Williams was arrested by police at the gate and charged with assault. The woman who Williams threatened also told cops some additional disturbing tidbits from their conversation.
She claimed Williams said she would follow the victim home to find out where she lives. The accused was taken into custody for the alleged threats but she has since been released on $3,000 bond.
