    Default Dolores O’Riordan arrested over plane assault

    Former Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan arrested over plane assault

    Award-winning singer held at Shannon airport in Ireland on suspicion of assaulting a flight attendant en route from New York


    The former lead singer of the Cranberries has been arrested over an alleged assault on a transatlantic flight to Ireland.

    Dolores O’Riordan was detained at Shannon aiport at 5.30am on Monday after arriving on an Aer Lingus flight from JFK airport in New York during which she allegedly assaulted a female flight attendant.

    Police drove to the landing area when the plane came to a halt, boarded the aircraft and arrested O’Riordan.

    Gardaí confirmed a woman in her 40s had been arrested on the plane and had been taken to Shannon Garda station where she can be detained for up to 24 hours under section four of the Criminal Justice Act.

    A Garda spokesman said: “Gardaí were called to meet the aircraft following an allegation of an assault on a female Aer Lingus air hostess. A Garda was also assaulted during the course of the arrest.”

    It is understood the flight attendant suffered a foot injury and was taken to the Mid-West Regional hospital in Limerick for treatment. The Garda who was allegedly injured did not require hospital care.

    A spokesman for Aer Lingus described the incident as a “security matter”.

    Drunk flying is my guess. They cut her off and she went ballistic.

    What a coincidence. I was talking about her to my mother this morning. She was asking me if the "crazy singer" was still performing.

    Watch out for those "authentic" Irish pubs in NYC. They're ALWAYS playing The Cranberries. Come to Woodlawn in the Bronx- it's an actual Irish-American/Irish immigrant community. You'll hear The Pogues, Thin Lizzy, The Dubliners and the old stand by- Black 47

    lol no worries. i kind of hate irish pubs in general, the drinks are horrible and there's always some loud sports game playing, that or terrible music. the only one i go to is one in my neighbourhood that isn't authentic at all but hosts weekly trivia nights and i'm always down for trivia.

    Flight attendant probably deserved it. On my most recent flights, most of them were total bitches.
