Threatening note prompts plane evacuation

A Delta flight scheduled to depart from Jacksonville International Airport Tuesday morning was evacuated after a passenger handed a crew member a threatening note.

JIA spokeswoman Debbie Jones tells Action News Delta flight 2380 was scheduled for departure at 10:10 a.m. but was evacuated when a woman passed along the threatening note.

Investigators swept the plane with K-9 units, but nothing suspicious was found on the plane.

The woman is currently being detained by the JIA Police Department until the FBI takes her in for questioning.

The passengers have been allowed to board the plane again after a nearly two-hour long delay.
