WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Will anything happen now to Ivana Trump after a bizarre incident at Palm Beach Intentional Airport? The former wife of real estate mogul Donald Trump and Palm Beach home owner was forcefully escorted off a plane after she became belligerent.

Update, TUE 10 AM: It seems Ivana Trump won't be charged at all for her airplane tirade at Palm Beach International Airport.

Delta determined it wouldn't file charges, and, deputies tell the Palm Beach Post, since she didn't physically hurt anyone, she may not be charged.

"That's what happens when you think you're privileged. She has to be treated like every other person when she flies," said traveler Dr. Roxana Anderson.

Delta offered to give her a voucher for a new flight.

Previously: The case is now in the hands of the U.S. Attorney's Office who will decide whether to file charges or not.

"She was wrong. Who does she think she is?" Many travelers had that reaction after Trump's rampage.

"I think it's ludicrous that she actually acted that way."

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded Saturday afternoon to a disturbance on a Delta plane headed to New York City. They say Trump, who was seated in first class, started becoming belligerent and aggravated towards other passengers and the flight crew during boarding.

Trump became more aggravated when children started walking up and down the aisle and screaming.

As the plane started to taxi out, Trump allegedly began to scream profanity about the kids being too loud. "You can say something to the stewardess, but it's not up to her to loudly voice what she thinks is wrong," said one passenger.

When deputies showed up and asked Trump to leave the plane, deputies say, she refused multiple times.

They then physically had to take her off the plane. "That's what happens when you think you're privileged. She has to be treated like every other person when she flies," said another passenger.

The airlines do have rules and everybody has to comply.

This whole incident even has some changing their minds about Trump. "I always liked her before, but now, I don't," said a Palm Beach County resident.

Sheriff's office says Trump was given the opportunity to reschedule her flight at a later time. She was picked up by her driver and left the airport without any further incidents.

People we spoke with don't believe charges are necessary, but some do agree a hefty fine is needed.
