PHILADELPHIA —

Police say a 23-year-old woman was removed from a Miami-bound plane at Philadelphia International Airport after she allegedly threw her cellphone at a flight attendant, slapped him and scratched his face.

Authorities say Sasha Anderson of Philadelphia was removed from the US Airways plane on Monday morning and was charged with simple assault, reckless endangerment, harassment and disorderly conduct. The name of the flight attendant wasn't released.

Police say other passengers on Flight 2051 stated that they were afraid to leave the ground with the disruptive passenger on the plane. The plane took off about an hour and a half later.
