Woman accused of shaking child, throwing things on flight may face charges

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -The Maricopa County Attorney's office now has the case of an alleged baby shaking aboard a Southwest Airlines flight from Phoenix to Las Vegas.

Last month police say a woman grabbed and shook a child in the seat behind her because the 3-year-old accidentally kicked her chair.

Flight attendants made the woman sit in another seat where she reportedly threw things at the child during the remainder of the flight.

The county attorney will now decide if the allegations warrant criminal charges.
