PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — A Massachusetts woman was kicked off a plane that was preparing to leave Northern Maine Regional Airport bound for Boston late Saturday morning after she caused a disturbance on the plane, according to Presque Isle police.

Marangley Torres, 21, of Brockton, Mass., “became disruptive” while preparing to board the plane, according to a press release from police. She eventually calmed down and was allowed to get on the flight, but then started causing problems again, police said.

“As the plane began to taxi toward the runway, Ms. Torres became disruptive once again by getting out of her seat and failing to comply with the airline staff,” the release states.

The pilot brought the plane back to the gate, where Officer Lynn Hartley boarded the plane and removed Torres.

Torres was summoned for disorderly conduct and released. She is set to appear in court on June 20.

The plane, which was scheduled to leave at 11 a.m., was delayed for about 25 minutes, according an online flight status report.
