Lexington, KY (WVLT) - A flight attendant from Atlantic Southeast Airlines is facing several charges after she was taken off a Delta Connection plane in Kentucky for allegedly being drunk.
Twenty-six-year-old Sarah Mills appeared in a Lexington courtroom by closed-circuit TV on Monday.
Officials at Bluegrass Airport say that before takeoff on Sunday, the plane's captain notified police that Mills was drunk and brought the plane back to the gate where police were waiting.
Police say Mills then made a threatening comment to the pilot.
Officials say she admitted to drinking whiskey onboard the plane.
She's charged with terroristic threats and alcohol intoxication.
