2 women accused of fighting on plane at JFK airport

NEW YORK - Two women are accused of fighting while trying to get off a jetliner at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.

JetBlue flight 960 had arrived from Kingston, Jamaica, around 8:45 a.m. Wednesday.

Port Authority spokesman Joseph Pentangelo says the scuffle began when 61-year-old Jean Ballentine of Brooklyn, New York, pushed Mary Cannady of Linden, New Jersey, while trying to climb over her to exit the plane.

A male passenger attempted to intervene, but the spokesman says Ballentine cut him with an eyebrow razor and Cannady used pepper spray on Ballentine.

Ballentine is charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal mischief. Cannady is charged with possession of tear gas.

It's not known if they have lawyers to comment on the charges.
