An unruly passenger was sentenced to four months in prison.
- A New York woman has been sentenced to four months in prison for making a scene on a flight from Dallas to Los Angeles last year.
- Bronx resident Kelly Pichardo, 32, and another passenger reportedly ganged up on a third person, used racial slurs against a man who asked them to stop and spit on another man who attempted to capture the altercation on video. The pilot ended up having to make an emergency landing in Phoenix so authorities could remove the women from the plane.
- In addition to her four-month sentence, Pichardo has been ordered to serve three years of supervised release and pay $9,200 in restitution to American Airlines, court documents reveal. The other woman has pleaded guilty and is scheduled to be sentenced in November, prosecutors say.
