Police at Raleigh-Durham Airport dismissed a charge Friday against a woman who forced an American Airlines flight to make an emergency landing.
Tiffany Miles initially faced a misdemeanor charge of airport obstruction for the incident on Wednesday.
Mile said she was on board a flight to Washington, D.C., and was suffering from anxiety after a flight attendant refused her request for a cocktail.
“I said, ‘I would like have Jack on the rocks.’ She said, ‘We are not serving alcohol.’ I said, ‘Why not?’ I am already having high anxiety at this moment because we are almost an hour late and my shot that I took before was wearing off, and we are about to fly,” Miles said.
Minutes later, Miles said she got up to use the bathroom and walked in the same direction as the cockpit.
The flight crew held her back, there was a minor scuffle, and she returned to her seat.
Five minutes later, Miles said the crew returned with zip ties and detained her.
Miles could still face federal charges.
