BOSTON (AP) — Police say a drunken passenger who tried to open an exit door on a London-to-Boston flight is being charged with interfering with a flight crew.

Massachusetts State Police say they don't believe the woman's misconduct had any link to terrorism. They identified her as 32-year-old Kamila Dolniak, a citizen of Poland.

Police say Dolniak was restrained Tuesday on British Airways Flight 213. The flight landed about 1:30 p.m., a half-hour ahead of schedule at Boston's Logan International Airport.

A clerk set bail at $1,040 for Dolniak. She had not posted bail by Tuesday evening and, as a result, was being held overnight at the state police barracks at the airport.

Dolniak is expected to be arraigned in a Boston courtroom Wednesday.
