CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) — A passenger aboard a US Airways flight from North Carolina to Florida has been arrested after witnesses say she attacked crew members before being wrestled to the jet’s floor.

The incident came hours after passengers aboard a JetBlue flight from New York to Las Vegas wrestled the plane’s agitated pilot.
