Allegedly Drunk Flight Attendant Pull from Lexington Plane

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.

    sure, let's fry her for being drunk, but OJ gets away a few times? WHAT THE HECK PEOPLE. Sure, its not cool to drink at a job -- but come on, this level of exposure and punishment for something I see nearly every day with drinkers during lunch? Guess it matters if they're wearing a tie, huh.

    Apparently with the drunk pilots and drunk stewardesses, being thrown off planes for cranky toddlers, and those intrusive searches about the only thing I'm NOT worried about is terrorists. We seem to be screwing it all up fine on our own.
