    A passenger arrested after attacking crew members on a USAirways flight out of Charlotte is apologizing for her behavior.

    Peggy Albedhady-Sanchez of Union City, N.J., told WNCN-TV that she's had a lot of personal problems. She was arrested after the flight landed Tuesday in Florida. She has bonded out of jail and remains in Florida.

    Fifty-year-old Albedhady-Sanchez says she's been taking medication since the death of a loved one. She says the medicine, combined with one alcoholic drink, caused her to panic.

    She says she doesn't remember slapping, kicking and spitting at flight attendants. Crew members and an off-duty deputy restrained her.

    Albedhady-Sanchez says she's embarrassed and she apologizes.

    She's charged with three counts of battery and one count of interfering with an aircraft.
