Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- A woman is facing charges of making a bomb threat against a plane heading from Las Vegas to Portland, Oregon.

According to Metro Police, 48-year-old Tamara Reid was arrested Friday at McCarran International Airport after an Alaska Airlines representative accused her of making a bomb threat. The representative said Reid was upset about not being allowed on the plane because she was intoxicated and late for boarding.

The representative told police that Reid said, “How do you know if I don't have a bomb in my bag?” while she was complaining about not being allowed on the flight.

The plane was searched and nothing was found. Reid told police she was ranting at the agent because she wasn't allowed on the plane and did not even have any checked luggage on the plane. Reid denied making a threat.
