BOISE Boise Police say an unruly passenger was arrested after a flight from Seattle landed at the Boise Airport Friday night.

Dorothea Seidenglanz, 37, of Boise is charged with interference with a flight crew and battery, both misdemeanors.

Several witnesses told officers the woman refused to comply with flight regulations and stop using a cell phone prior to take off. She eventually complied with the request. However, during the flight she became verbally abusive toward the flight attendant and threw a plastic cup at her, striking her in the head.

Officers believe alcohol was a factor in this incident.

The flight landed around 7 p.m. and after an investigation, Seidenglanz was arrested and taken to the Ada County Jail. She has since posted bond and been released.
