FULTON — Police say a 69-year-old woman forced a plane to abort its landing Saturday night when she went onto the runway and fired a gun.
Judy Davis of Fulton was being detained when police arrived and found a loaded .22 caliber handgun in her pants pocket. Mexico, Mo., radio station KXEO reports that she was arrested on a charge of unlawful use of a weapon and released after posting $4,500 bond.
Police say Davis walked into the terminal and said she was planning to shoot down a plane. She told investigators she was upset because the plane had repeatedly flown too close to her house.
Officials say federal authorities have been contacted and will be helping with the investigation.
