A passenger aboard an Alaska Airlines flight from Atlanta to Seattle Wednesday is accused of making a bomb threat that caused pilots to land the plane in Spokane, Washington. Handle this matter carefully and exactly how I say, otherwise I will detonate the explosives and kill everyone on board." Upon arrival in Spokane, Scott was detained but a search by a bomb squad found no explosives, court documents said. Scott told investigators he made the false threat hoping to be arrested because members of the Sinaloa Cartel were waiting in Seattle to torture and kill him. Chloe Dasilva, 32, was on a flight from San Francisco to Chicago O'Hare when she allegedly became disruptive and threatened to kill a flight attendant, authorities said.
