A woman on a Southwest Airlines flight from Portland to Sacramento would have killed for the chance to smoke a cigarette Saturday.
At least, that’s what she said. Valerie Curbelo was arrested and charged with the felony for making a death threat after coming unhinged when flight attendants prevented her from smoking.
Curbelo attempted to smoke in the bathroom of the plane during the flight, even tampering with the smoke detector hoping to conceal her action.
A flight attendant discovered what she was doing and broke into the bathroom, getting her out. That’s when things got ugly.
