The Medford Mail Tribune reported Tuesday she was on a Horizon Air flight from Seattle on Saturday evening.
The Medford police said flight attendants called for help with a passenger who was apparently drunk, using her cellphone while the plane was aloft, screaming profanely and, as the plane approached the airport, refusing to stow the tray table in the upright, locked position.
After she was handcuffed, police said, she kicked one officer in the chest and spat on two others.
Police said they booked Melisa Lynn Levario, 32, on charges of attempting to assault an officer, harassment, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
