CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Trial will soon be underway for an American Airlines flight attendant accused of attacking fellow crew members and two U.S. air marshals.

The Charlotte Observer reports (https://bit.ly/2b7bWO7 ) prosecutors on Tuesday reduced the charges against 67-year-old Joanne Snow ahead of her trial Friday in federal court.

She had faced two felonies stemming from a round-trip flight between Charlotte and Frankfurt, Germany, last November.

An affidavit said she attacked two U.S. marshals and slapped a fellow flight attendant before trying to flee passport control after the plane landed in Charlotte.

After Snow’s arrest, she was involuntarily committed to a hospital, then jailed.

Prosecutors say in a document that Snow “knowingly and intentionally” assaulted a federal officer on the flight.

Snow’s attorney, Peter Adolf, wasn’t available for comment Wednesday to the newspaper.
