Smoker arrested after yelling death threats on plane

SACRAMENTO: Officials say a woman caught trying to smoke on a Southwest flight has been arrested after shouting she was going to kill everyone on the plane.
Sacramento County sheriff’s spokesman Shaun Hampton said Monday that 24-year-old Valerie Curbelo was arrested on the tarmac when the plane landed Saturday.
Hampton says when the crew stopped Curbelo from having a cigarette in the plane’s bathroom, she threatened to kill all the passengers and crew and became combative.
Southwest said in a statement that the flight from Portland, Oregon, received priority treatment from air traffic control and landed safely in Sacramento.
In a jailhouse interview with KOVR-TV, Curbelo, of Sandy, Oregon, said anxiety drove her to smoke.
She said she didn’t know why she made the death threats, adding that it wasn’t typical behavior for her.

An excited, energetic Taylor Swift brings tour to MetLife

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.: Taylor Swift brought her explosive Reputation Tour to the MetLife Stadium on Friday and will make history as the first female artist to play three consecutive shows at the venue when she performs Saturday and Sunday.
Swift was energetic and excited during her two-hour-plus show at the stadium, home to the New York Giants and the New York Jets.
She kicked the show in a glittery black number, changing outfits multiple times and performing across three stages at the venue holding 80,000 seats.
She sang a number of songs from her recent album, “reputation,” including the hits “Gorgeous,” “Delicate,” .”..Ready for It?” and “Look What You Made Me Do,” which featured a large snake in the background.
“There’s so many things you could be doing on your Friday night, so thank you for hanging out with us,” Swift said to the feverish audience.
