A woman who pulled her trousers down during a meltdown on a Frontier Airlines flight has been issued federal charges.

Last November, 60-year-old Dulce Huertas was on a flight heading from Orlando to Philadelphia, when she got out of her seat while the aircraft was about to land and announced: "I have to pee," according to a federal complaint obtained by The New York Post.

A flight attendant identified as "R.G." instructed Huertas to sit down, but the passenger had an outburst and started swearing at people before finally taking her seat, the file signed by FBI Special Agent Kyle Kapron notes.

"After the plane landed and was taxiing to the gate, Huertas began cursing at passengers around her," the document said. "R.G. asked flight attendant M.P. to call security to assist at the arrival gate."

Watch the shocking incident below:

The captain was notified about the disruptive passenger - who had had two cocktails on the flight - and made an announcement urging all passengers to remain seated.

When the seatbelt sign was turned off, and travelers began to rise from their seats, Huertas allegedly pushed them out of the way as she moved to the front of the aircraft.

She approached the lavatory and said: "Sorry, everybody," before pulling down her pants and underwear "as she squatted as if to urinate in the aisle," it cited in the complaint, which also alleged that she exposed her anus and genitalia in front of children.

As the crowds of passengers yelled in disgust and shock, she pulled her pants back up and exclaimed "I don't give a f***" and "f*** you" to several people before reiterating: "I gotta go pee!"

At one point, the person filming the horrific moment was heard saying: "That poor boy next to us" - referring to the child across the aisle who saw the woman’s graphic display.

The affidavit claims that Huertas charged toward the front of the plane again and allegedly told one flight attendant: "Let me pass, let me pass," but they didn't let her while another tried to disarm the main cabin door, worrying that Huertas might unlock it and trigger an emergency slide.

In her final minutes on the aircraft, the outraged woman reportedly bumped a flight attendant with her stomach, roared and swore at people around her, and threatened to kill numerous passengers.

According to the complaint filed in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Huertas has now been charged with indecent exposure in the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States, interference with flight crew members and attendants, and simple assault.

If the woman is convicted, she will face a maximum possible sentence of 21 years and three months in prison, three years of supervised release, and a $355,000 fine.
