US woman in air rage incident committed for mental assessment

A US woman has been held in Bermuda under the Mental Health Act after her disruptive behaviour forced an aircraft to return to the Island.

Police said the woman is being detained for assessment at the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute.

Sunday’s JetBlue flight 1732 to New York returned to LF Wade International Airport, where the passenger was arrested for causing a disturbance after take-off.

She had drawn attention earlier in the day at a Dockyard travel agency, for what a witness described as odd behaviour.
