A woman who allegedly consumed prescription drugs, wine and soap and then clashed with members of the flight crew on a London-bound jetliner has waived a bail hearing.
Galina Rusanova, a Russian-born artist who lives in London, appeared briefly in U.S. District on Monday before being returned to 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 on Chicago-based United Airlines was diverted to Bangor.
