Woman accused of air rage back in court in Maine

Woman accused of air rage back in court in Maine

A British woman who allegedly consumed prescription drugs, wine and soap and then clashed with members of the flight crew on a London-bound jetliner returns to court Monday.
Galina Rusanova, a Russian-born artist who lives in London, awaited a detention hearing in U.S. District Court after spending the weekend in a Maine jail. She faces federal charges of assault and interference with a flight crew.
Prosecutors say the 54-year-old Rusanova punched and kicked attendants and began "snapping like a dog" while trying to bite a crew member's leg.
The FBI said she had gone to Los Angeles to visit a man she met over the Internet and was returning Wednesday when her flight was diverted to Bangor.
