The wife of Canadian Senator Rod Zimmer was arrested for causing a disturbance in an airplane. She is expected to appear in court Monday — the couple’s anniversary. That is their first anniversary.
Zimmer is a 69-year-old senator from Manitoba. His wife, Maygan Sensenbrenner, is 23. Right there is a hint that this story is not going to end well.
Sensenbrenner was arrested in Saskaton after the plane that she was on called the airport. Reports indicate that she and Zimmer engaged in an argument. She threatened Zimmer and threatened to bring down the airplane.
From the Ottawa Citizen:
City police said they were called to Saskatoon’s John G. Diefenbaker Airport around 8 p.m. Thursday night to deal with a passenger on an incoming flight who was causing a disturbance. Officers took Sensenberger into custody once the plane landed and passengers disembarked. No one was injured.
She is accused of threatening to kill her husband and “take down the aircraft,” as well as causing a disturbance by screaming and yelling on the Air Canada flight from Ontario, a Crown prosecutor said during her arraignment Friday.
So much for any thoughts that Canadian politicians have a leg up on those in the US. Why Zimmer thought it might be a good idea for a national politician of senior-citizen age to marry a woman who could be his gandaughter is not explained, but that is probably because critical thinking was not on Zimmer’s mind at that time.
