An Ohio woman is filing a lawsuit after being pulled off of an airplane at gunpoint on September 11, 2011.

The half-Jewish, half-Arab woman was flying from Denver to Detroit when she was yanked off the flight.

Shoshana Hebshi says she was strip-searched and jailed for hours in a “dirty cell” at Detroit Metro Airport.

Officials say the flight crew did all this because they had concerns about two other male passengers on the plane.

Hebshi is filing a lawsuit that claims Frontier Airlines, the FBI, TSA and other government agencies discriminated against her because of her ethnicity.

The FBI isn’t commenting on the suit.
