NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The stepmother of actress Lindsay Lohan has been sentenced to a year of probation in connection with a disturbance on a JetBlue flight last November.

New Orleans-based U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite says in a Tuesday news release that 33-year-old Kate Major Lohan of Boca Raton, Florida, was sentenced after pleading guilty to simple assault.

Court documents said she cursed and threw a cellphone at a flight attendant on a flight from Florida to Los Angeles. The flight was then diverted to New Orleans after the disturbance.

In addition to probation, Polite’s news release says Lohan was ordered to pay $7,212.25 cents to cover costs including a landing fee, fuel charges and flight delays.
