CRANBERRIES singer Dolores O’Riordan has been arrested by gardaí after an alleged incident on a New York to Shannon flight this morning.

A female flight attendant was allegedly assaulted by the county Limerick woman shortly before the plane landed in Shannon at 5.30am this Monday.

Gardaí were called to the airport and it is understood a member of the gardaí was also assaulted by the No Need to Argue singer, who has sold millions of albums worldwide.

One of the parties was hospitalised after the incident, but the injuries have not been described as serious.

A spokesperson for the garda press office said while they cannot comment on individual cases, they confirmed that a woman in her 40s was arrested at Shannon and is currently being detained at Shannon garda station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act. She is still being questioned and can be held for 24 hours.

The former Voice of Ireland judge and mother of three, who is from Ballybricken, County Limerick, was arrested and brought to Shannon Garda Station, where she is being questioned.

She largely resides in Canada with her family, but frequently returns to Ireland.
