Flight diverted to New Orleans when Lindsay Lohan's step-mom throws phone at flight attendant


The New Orleans Advocate

‘Twas the night before Thanksgiving, and Lindsay Lohan’s step-mom was not in a traveling mood, according to a federal complaint filed against Kate Major Lohan over the alleged antics that led a JetBlue pilot to divert a cross-country flight to New Orleans.

Major Lohan, wife of the bedeviled Hollywood actress’s father, Michael Lohan, allegedly started in early from seat 12F on flight #101 last Wednesday from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International, bound for Los Angeles.

She “immediately became disruptive” when asked to bring her seat back forward as the plane taxied for takeoff, wrote FBI Special Agent Crystal Bender in an affidavit backing the complaint.

A flight attendant cautioned Major Lohan and gave her water, but at 10,000 feet, a neighboring passenger began repeatedly pressing the flight attendant call button.

“A witness advised that Lohan appeared to be intoxicated or possibly under the influence of an unknown substance. Lohan called the witness’ wife a ‘bitch’ and stated that she would ‘slit her throat,’” the affidavit states.

Other passengers chimed in over the alleged threats as well, so the captain moved Lohan to first class, to keep an eye on her through closed-circuit TV from the cockpit.

Her status upgraded, Lohan requested a glass of wine, which the flight attendant refused, Bender wrote.

Lohan started cursing and “took photographs and videos of the flight attendant. The flight attendant continued to ask Lohan to calm down as they did not want to have to divert the flight on Thanksgiving,” Bender continued.

“Lohan then threw here cellular telephone at the flight attendant. The cellular telephone hit the aircraft wall, but ricocheted and hit the flight attendant. Lohan also threatened to stab the flight attendant.”
