Attendant charged with striking colleagues, air marshal can return to NH but not by plane

A U.S. magistrate is allowing the American Airlines flight attendant accused of striking co-workers and federal marshals on an overseas flight to return to her New Hampshire home for a psychological evaluation.

But multiple media outlets report 67-year-old Joanne Snow isn't allowed to fly there.

On Friday, U.S. Magistrate Judge David Cayer set a $50,000 unsecured bond for Snow, provided she visits a mental health treatment facility within 10 days for an assessment.

Her attorney suggested that an adverse reaction to a new medication may be to blame for Snow's behavior.

Snow is accused of two federal crimes stemming from a round-trip flight between Charlotte and Frankfurt, Germany, on Thanksgiving. She faces a maximum penalty of more than 25 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.
