When the plane landed at LAX, the woman was escorted off by police and subsequently detained. We”re told cops were deeply concerned about her claim that she got a knife through airport security.

She later tried to bury the hatchet, tweeting back at Cheban, “It was a bad joke … you look really hot babe.” But airport police weren”t taking any chances.

Police searched the woman outside the plane and determined she did NOT actually have a knife. She was subsequently released without further incident.

Cheban tells our sources, he never personally alerted authorities … someone else reported the tweets.
