Kentucky woman who claimed she had message from God caused bomb scare at Reagan National

DAYTON, Ohio — A woman whose comments in Ohio about a bomb stopped flights for a time at Washington Reagan National Airport told officials she received a message from God.

No explosives were found Sunday in a search of a plane that arrived in Washington from Dayton. The threat shut down the airport for about 20 minutes.

The Dayton Daily News quotes Dayton airport director Terrence Slaybaugh as saying the 54-year-old Shelbyville, Ky. woman indicated God sent her a message, which she told a ticket agent in Dayton. Slaybaugh says the woman said the US Airways flight had a bomb on board and people would die.

FBI Special Agent Michael Brooks told The Associated Press on Monday no charges have been filed against the woman, who was taken to a mental health facility.
