According to ABC News, 34-year-old Elom Agbegninou tried to pull the handle of the exit door as flight attendants fought to contact her erratic behavior.

Witnesses said that before the incident, Agbegninou had requested two flight attendants to look out the window by the jump seat.

"She said she couldn't breathe on the plane and decided to get up from her seat. She said she has anxiety, became very anxious, and normally wouldn't have done these things," reads part of the police report.

That is when, at 37,000 feet in the sky, the woman started trying to open the door before she was wrestled down.

Jesus told her

One of the passengers, who was bitten while trying to restrain the woman, remembers Agbegninou claiming that Jesus told her to fly to Ohio and to open the aircraft door.

A look into the passenger's history shows that she was headed to Maryland to stay with a family friend who was a pastor, and had left home without informing her husband.

As per the police report, detectives are treating the incident as a potential assault which is an aircraft violation.

"We will work closely with the prosecutors at the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Arkansas to thoroughly investigate this incident and potentially bring federal charges," the report concludes.

At the time of filing this story, the passenger had been taken into police custody as detectives work on understanding her state of mind and unravelling what her exact intentions were.
