French passenger not charged in diverted Charlotte flight

BANGOR, Maine (AP) — A French citizen accused of causing a US Airways flight to be diverted to Maine by claiming she had a surgically implanted device will soon be headed back home.
U.S. Attorney Thomas Delahanty II said today that the evidence doesn’t support charges against the passenger, Lucie Zeeko Marigot, 41.
He says Marigot told investigators that she had been wronged by doctors and wanted President Barack Obama to provide her with medical assistance. She’s being turned over to Customs and Border Protection and will be returned to France.
Flight 787 was traveling from Paris to North Carolina when it was diverted Tuesday to Bangor. The Boeing 767 with 179 passengers and nine crew spent several hours in Bangor before continuing to Charlotte.
