WINNIPEG - One charge against a Manitoba senatorís wife accused of air rage has been dropped.
Maygan Sensenberger, 23, was accused of causing a disturbance onboard an Air Canada flight from Halifax to Saskatoon on Thursday.
She is no longer accused of endangering an aircraft, but allegations of causing a disturbance and uttering threats against her husband remain following a Tuesday court appearance, Saskatchewan court officials confirmed.
Sensenbergerís Monday court date, at which she got bail but was ordered to abstain from alcohol and seeing her husband, coincided with her first wedding anniversary to 69-year-old Manitoba Sen. Rod Zimmer.
Some witnesses reported she yelled repeatedly on the plane that her husband was ill and appeared genuinely concerned about his health.
Zimmer was born in Kuroki, Sask,, and lives in Winnipeg. He is a former president of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and was a member of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Football Club board of directors for more than a decade before being named to the Senate.
