BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A North Port, Florida woman was arrested at Bangor International Airport on Sunday after police say she became unruly.

Investigators say on December 29 at about 3:30 p.m. there were a number of passengers at BIA who were waiting to be able to board an Allegiant Air flight to Florida that had been delayed due to weather.

Officer Chris Desmond was in the secure area and saw a woman throwing some personal items around and loudly spouting profanity about the delayed flight. He then observed other passengers get up and move away from her.

Officer Desmond told 54-year-old Janet Dinardi that she would need to stop calm down and stop swearing, as she was making other passengers uncomfortable.

She allegedly continued to use profanity -- now directed at Officer Desmond -- and was warned to stop or she would be arrested for Disorderly Conduct.

Police say Dinardi continued to be loud and verbally abusive. At that time, an Allegiant Air staff member informed Dinardi and Officer Desmond that due to Dinardi's level of intoxication and her unruliness, they would not allow her to board the flight. 

Officers escorted Dinardi out of the secured area and to the first floor of the terminal, where they informed her she would need to leave the building.

Dinardi refused to leave the building despite several warnings, and was eventually placed under arrest for Criminal Trespass. She was also charged with Disorderly Conduct as she continued to be loud and disruptive.

Dinardi posted bail, and is scheduled to appear in court in February.
