NASHVILLE (AP) – An American Airlines plane flying from Dallas to Boston was diverted to Nashville after a passenger became disruptive and allegedly ran toward the plane’s cockpit.
American Airlines spokesman Kent Powell told The Associated Press on Sunday that Flight 2214 landed in Nashville around 9 p.m. Saturday.
Nashville Police identified the woman as 55-year-old Mary Lentz of New Mexico.
Police said she ran toward the cockpit of the Boeing 737 aircraft, and allegedly kicked several officers during her arrest.
Lentz was charged with three assaults on an officer, assault bodily injury, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
She was being held in the Davidson County Jail on $30,000 bond. Jail records did not list an attorney for Lentz.
