The charge was dropped this morning when Maygan Sensenberger appeared in domestic violence court in Saskatoon.

The 23-year-old still faces one count of causing a disturbance and the Crown added a count of uttering threats.

Saskatoon police arrested the woman last week after she allegedly caused a ruckus on a flight from Ottawa while sitting with her
husband, 69-year-old Senator Rod Zimmer.

Witnesses say Zimmer started having health problems on the flight and his wife got emotional about getting him medical treatment.


Sensenberger is to appear in court again this afternoon.
