A California woman who allegedly needed to be physically restrained during a flight to Philadelphia was charged Thursday with interfering with flight crew members and possessing a controlled substance.
Jamie Lynne Combs, 35, of McKinleyville, allegedly became disruptive March 18 while on board United Airlines Flight No. 384, which travelled from San Fransisco to Philadelphia.
A flight attendant became concerned that Combs was attempting to make her way to one of the aircraft's rear doors and ordered her to stop, a command Combs allegedly disobeyed, according charging documents. Combs also allegedly fought the attendant as she was placed against a wall and handcuffed.
Two other attendants handcuffed Combs, who was then moved to another seat beside a flight attendant for the remainder of the flight. Upon arrival at Philadelphia International Airport, police found about 30 grams of marijuana in her backpack.
If convicted, Combs faces possible imprisonment and a fine.
