The AP had the following story about an unruly passenger.
Los Angeles - Airplane passengers subdued and then duct-taped a man who was pacing the aisle and reading loudly from the Bible during a flight from Hawaii, police and witnesses said.Here's some questions I have:
No one was injured, and the man was handed over to authorities after the plane landed at Los Angeles International Airport early yesterday, said Sgt. Carl Sansbury of the airport police.
Brian Eager, 36, of Austin, Texas, was held for 72 hours to undergo a psychological examination, FBI Special Agent Matt McLaughlin said.
Sansbury said he didn't know what prompted the outburst on the United Airlines flight from Honolulu. He said the FBI was investigating.
Passengers and a federal immigration and customs agent who was traveling for personal reasons helped restrain Eager, but he managed to slip out of handcuffs, McLaughlin said.Eager could face a federal charge of interfering with a flight crew, Sansbury said.
- We have people that cannot handcuff suspects protecting our borders?
- You can bring duct tape on a plane?
- How did they cut the tape if people aren't allowed fingernail clippers?
I am feeling very insecure now.
