SASKATOON - A woman charged with causing a disturbance on a flight to Saskatoon was allegedly arguing with her husband, who is a Canadian senator.
Maygan Sensenberger was in court in Saskatoon on Friday, after allegedly threatening passengers, swearing, and arguing with her husband, Rod Zimmer, 69.
Police say they were called to the Saskatoon airport Thursday night around 8 p.m. for a report of a disruptive passenger in her 20s on an incoming flight.
Officers met the woman when the aircraft landed.
Zimmer, who is a Liberal and represents Manitoba in the Senate, was appointed to the Canadian upper chamber in 2005.
No one was injured in the incident and police say the safety of the aircraft was not compromised.
Sensenberger was visibly shaken and tearful in the prisoner's box during her court appearance Friday.
Sensenberger is charged for endangering the safety of the aircraft and causing a disturbance.
She will be remanded in custody until her second appearance on Monday.
