The wife of Manitoba Liberal Senator Rod Zimmer has been charged for a disruption on an airplane that landed in Saskatoon Thursday night.

CBC News has confirmed Maygan Sensenberger, who was arrested as she got off a flight from Ottawa, is married to the senator.

Sensenberger, 23, appeared in a Saskatoon provincial court Friday after she was charged with endangering the safety of the aircraft and causing a disturbance.

According to the Saskatoon Police Service, the flight crew called ahead of time, at about 8 p.m. CST, saying Sensenberger had been causing a disturbance during the flight.

Police said the commotion started with a verbal disagreement between Sensenberger and Zimmer, 69.

CBC has attained court documents from Sensenberger's appearance this morning that states she had uttered threats against her husband and also threatened to take down the plane.

No one was hurt and the safety of the airplane was not compromised, police said.

Sensenberger will remain in jail over the weekend — at the Pine Grove Correctional Centre in Prince Albert — and is scheduled to appear in court again on Monday morning.

That's an important day for the couple for another reason, it's their first wedding anniversary.

Zimmer has been a senator since 2005. He's a businessman, philanthropist and was a fundraiser for the Liberal Party of Canada.
