When she was escorted back to her seat by flight attendants, she started on a disturbing outburst, screaming that she would "fucking kill" everybody on the plane if it didn't land.
"I have a destination for myself, and I need to go there", Curbelo says in a video taken by another passenger.
"I will kill everybody on this fucking plane", said the passenger.
A reporter from the station spoke with Curbelo at the jail, where she said she attempted to smoke on the plane because of "anxiety".
During the flight headed from Portland, Oregon, to Sacramento, California, the woman disabled a smoke detector so that she could enjoy a few lung-damaging puffs in the bathroom.

The station also announced that Curbelo is now booked in the Sacramento county jail for making criminal threats.
