FBI Arrests Woman Accused of Setting Fire to Blankets During Flight

The FBI arrested a woman who set fire to two blankets while aboard a Puerto Rico-bound flight from New York City’s John F. Kennedy.

According to the statement by the FBI, passenger Idializ Gomez was a passenger on a JetBlue aircraft when she “utilized a lighter to ignite and successfully damage two blankets and a portion of the in-flight control panel of the seat next to hers.”

Gomez boarded the plane at 12:43 a.m. and was arrested at 4:21 a.m. Tuesday, when the aircraft landed in Ponce, Puerto Rico.

Gomez was charged with destruction of an aircraft and aircraft facilities.

It’s unclear what prompted Gomez to allegedly ignite the blankets with a lighter. The FBI continues to investigate.
