A fellow passenger who shot this video and sent it to CBS affiliate KOVR, says she was ordered back to her seat but began yelling irrationally, demanding that the plane land. Curbello later went on to tell a CBS affiliate reporter that she had turned to smoking to try to quell her anxiety.

She was arrested and escorted to law enforcement upon landing, Southwest Airlines confirmed. "I will kill everybody on this f--ing plane".

'Our reports from flight attendants indicate a customer violated federal laws by both smoking on board an aircraft and by tampering with a smoke detector in an aircraft restroom. The safety of our Crew and Passengers is our top priority and we take all threats seriously.

She said she didn't know why she made the death threats, adding that it wasn't typical behavior for her.

Several passengers and flight attendants got up and restrained her. Our Crew enforced the regulation and that was followed by the passenger outburst.

Cabello is from Sandy, Oregon just outside of Portland. Curbelo is now booked 3 counts of Felony criminal threats and her bail has been set at $75,000.
