The pilot made an unscheduled stop just after midnight Tuesday morning at Denver International Airport, where passenger Svetlana Yankovsky, address unknown, was arrested.
She faces a federal charge of interfering with a flight crew.
One flight attendant told an FBI agent that Yankovsky was drinking from a bottle of wine while the plane was taxiing at the Las Vegas airport, according to court documents.
After the flight attendant took away the bottle, Yankovsky allegedly demanded her "red water" back and began singing, chanting and touching other passengers.
The plane still was climbing after takeoff when two passengers asked flight attendants to "do something" about Yankovsky, court documents said.
But when flight attendants tried to calm Yankovsky down, she allegedly told them, "Not good, plane crash, all die."
"Yankovsky continued her erratic behavior by 'hexing' the aircraft, the crew, and the other passengers," an FBI agent's affidavit said. "Yankovsky was singing and chanting in the aircraft and saying that everyone was going to die, their children would die, and their grandchildren would die."
It said the plane's four flight attendants gathered in the rear of the plane to discuss how to handle Yankovsky, and considered using the restraints that were on board and asking other passengers to help them subdue the woman. They got out the restraints, but were afraid to use them, the affidavit said.
When flight attendant Sandra McKibben approached Yankovsky and tried to quiet her, Yankovsky slapped her in the face, it said.
"Yankovsky continued her erratic behavior throughout the rest of the flight until removed by Denver police officers," the affidavit said."
