SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A flight attendant on a Chicago-to-South Bend flight has been charged with public intoxication.

Forty-nine-year-old Julianne March of Waukesha, Wisconsin, faces an Aug. 29 initial hearing after being charged Thursday.

Court documents say March was part of an Air Wisconsin crew working an Aug. 2 United Express flight when passengers became “scared for their lives” due to her apparent medical condition after departing Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.

When the plane landed in South Bend, officers removed March from the plane. Court documents say she smelled of alcohol and had a blood-alcohol content of 0.20%.

The South Bend Tribune reports Air Wisconsin Airlines says that it’s “fully cooperating with the local authorities.”

Online court records don’t list an attorney who could speak on March’s behalf.
