Woman arrested after stricken cruise ship docks in San Diego

By Associated Press

POSTED:



SAN DIEGO — Thousands of passengers were happy to be freed from a broken-down cruise ship that finally reached San Diego this week, but confinement continues for one woman who was taken ashore in handcuffs.

Harbor Police Officer Adam Miles says 40-year-old Wendy Singleton was arrested when the Carnival Splendor docked Thursday after four days at sea without power because of a fire.

Singleton is wanted in Las Vegas on a felony grand theft warrant and remains jailed Friday.

San Diego port spokeswoman Marguerite Elicone says a routine customs check led to the arrest.

Elicone says a man was going to be arrested on another matter but it was a mistaken identification.

Miles says all passengers on international cruises are routinely checked for warrants.
