HONOLULU (AP) - A Kona real estate agent who prosecutors say threw a soda can at a flight attendant after being told to stop using her electronic cigarette on a flight has been sentenced to three years of probation.

Hawaii News Now reports (https://bit.ly/1N10n8P ) that 34-year-old Kristin Sharp was sentenced in federal court Thursday. She had pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of assault related to the September incident.

Sharp had been traveling from Las Vegas to Honolulu when flight attendants say she became aggressive after being asked to put away her e-cigarette.

Prosecutors say Sharp hurled the can of soda water at a flight attendant and appeared to be drunk.

Sharp apologized for the incident in court, saying she had been on prescription medication and wasn’t thinking clearly.
