Updated: 

A Delta Connection flight attendant has been charged with being under the influence while serving as cabin crew on a flight.

Nancy Bray was arrested at Kentucky's Blue Grass Airport on Tuesday and, according to police, her blood alcohol was three times over the legal limit.

She had been scheduled to work a flight from Kentucky to Detroit, but was arrested when medics were called to help her after she fell sick.

According to the Daily Mail, Bray pleaded not guilty to being an aircrew member under the influence in court on Wednesday.

Passengers were delayed for two hours following the incident.

The airline told ABC News in a statement: "Delta is aware of reports of the arrest of a Chautauqua Airlines flight attendant for alleged public intoxication prior to the departure of Delta Connection flight 6095 from Lexington to Detroit late Tuesday afternoon.

"Delta will support any investigation by law enforcement in concert with Republic Airways Holdings, parent company of Chautauqua. Delta expects consummate professionalism from all parties who are entrusted with the care of transport of our customers, no matter which carrier may be operating their flight. "
