A woman who was angry about being dumped on Facebook and made bogus threats about her ex posing risks to a plane departing from LAX was sentenced today to serve 100 hours of community service.

Lizet Sariol, a 46-year-old Temple City woman, pleaded guilty in January to a felony count of conveying false and misleading information to United Airlines. Today, Judge John F. Walter sentenced her with community service, two years probation, and directed her to seek outpatient substance abuse treatment, according to City News Service.

Sariol admitted that she made the anonymous phone call on September 25. She said that her ex, Adnen Mansouri, posted an unspecified threat to the airline.

FBI agents held Mansouri and a group of friends who were traveling with him at LAX for questioning, according to the report. Mansouri told investigators that he and Sariol had a four-night fling in L.A. but he broke it off and un-friended her on Facebook a few hours before he was due to head back to Paris.
