By KHALEDA RAHMAN FOR DAILYMAIL.COM – A realtor was detained after she allegedly got drunk, exposed her breasts and refused to stop smoking an e-cigarette on a Hawaii-bound flight.
Kristin Sharp, 34, of Kona, was questioned by the FBI after she clashed with a flight attendant on the journey from Las Vegas to Honolulu on Thursday.
Witnesses claimed Sharp was ‘drunk and belligerent’ on the Allegiant Air flight, which she denies.
She told Hawaii News Now: ‘I’m apologizing that it did happen, but it did not need to get carried to the level that it did.
‘I think he [the flight attendant] had a bad day and was taking it out on me with a bad attitude.’
She added he was ‘very rude’ to her.
Passengers on the flight told authorities that Sharp exposed her breasts, swore at the attendant and also threw a crumpled can with soda still in it at him.
But she explained: ‘I didn’t mean to throw it at him. I was trying to hit the trash can that was next to him.’
Witnesses sad Sharp had been using an e-cigarette when she boarded the plane – and continued to use it while in her front-row seat despite being told by the attendant to put it out.
She said that she did as she was told, but passengers allege that she later went to the restroom to vape. She denies this claim.
The crew reportedly then moved Sharp and her boyfriend Bryant Clark away from the cockpit and she then passed out for the duration of the journey.
Sharp is likely to face federal criminal charges, Hawaii News Now reported.
The penalty for assaulting a flight attendant could be a fine as well as jail time of up to 20 years.
