Woman Arrested after Stricken Cruise Ship Docks

Cruise Ship docked After four days with no electricity across hundreds of miles of open ocean, the journey for more than 3,000 passengers aboard the Carnival Splendor cruise ship is expected to come to an end this morning in San Diego. CBS

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