SANTIAGO, Chile – People are capable of doing many things for love. What Grace Guajardo did forced the evacuation of more than 300 people from a plane moments before takeoff.

Authorities say she phoned in a false bomb threat to keep her boyfriend from flying off to a new job. “I’m sorry, but I did it for love,” Guajardo said Monday after she was charged with making a false bomb threat.

Freed pending trial, she faces up to 61 days in jail if convicted. Prosecutors decided not to invoke the more severe anti-terrorism law after hearing the couple’s story.

What have you done for love?
