CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A Virginia woman facing charges related to telling authorities at a North Carolina airport that she had a bomb is free on bond.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office says 25-year-old Danielle Shanese Smith of Virginia Beach, Va., was released on bond Friday. She's not allowed to fly commercially or be in an airport until her case ends.

Smith was arrested Wednesday at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport and is charged with giving false information. Authorities say Smith told security workers several times that she had a bomb and also that she was a terrorist.

An affidavit says Smith and another person had planned to take a US Airways flight to Norfolk, Va.

Smith's attorney did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
