FORT MYERS, Fla., March 30 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said they arrested a woman accused of cursing and attacking a flight attendant who refused to serve her alcohol.

The Lee County Port Authority Police Department said Peggy Albedhady-Sanchez, 50, was arrested Tuesday at Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers for allegedly "cursing, spitting, kicking and screaming" at a US Airways flight attendant on the flight from Charlotte, N.C., the Naples (Fla.) Daily News reported Friday.

Police said Albedhady-Sanchez slapped a flight attendant who attempted to intervene and kicked a third flight attendant in the groin.

An off-duty Lee County sheriff's deputy who was on the flight took the woman to the back of the plane and placed her in plastic restraints until the plane landed.

Albedhady-Sanchez was charged with interfering with the operation of an aircraft and three counts of battery. She was taken to the Lee County jail in lieu of $5,500 bond.
