PHILADELPHIA (CBS13/AP) — Prosecutors say a psychiatric evaluation has been ordered for a Roseville, California woman who was arrested at Philadelphia International Airport after she made threats on board a flight arriving from London.

Police arrested Hannah Shiner on Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators say she threatened the flight crew and passengers, saying she’d blow up the plane.

An incident report from Tinicum Township police say Shiner was chanting “f*#@ the Government and blow up the Government.” It also said she made numerous references to the 911 attacks and that she said she supported Bin Laden for blowing up the Pentagon.

Police have not said what they believe prompted her statements,.

The Delaware County district attorney’s office says Shiner faces charges of disorderly conduct and making terroristic threats. Officials with the prosecutors’ office say Shiner was arraigned Thursday and is being held on $250,000 bail.

It is not clear if she has an attorney.
