Police confirmed they detained Cornwall when the flight landed, Atlanta police said in a statement.

“This disturbance led to the injury of fellow passengers and Delta employees. Based on the statements gathered and visible evidence, officers detained Ms. Cornwall and contacted the on-call FBI agent. … FBI agents responded and took custody of Ms. Cornwall,” police said.

According to the NY Post, Cornwall was identified as a former Raiders cheerleader.

“In the early 1990s, she was also a member of the Raiderettes — the cheerleading squad for the then-Los Angeles Raiders. Decades ago, as Patty Breton, she appeared in small televisions roles, according to her IMDb profile. She was on an episode of “Baywatch” in 1987 and had a role on “Married … with Children” in 1989. The actress was also featured in “Playboy: Cheerleaders.”

Cornwall appeared in federal court Monday. Court documents show she was released on $20,000 bond.

Another blow for Raiders nation.
