A JetBlue flight departing from New York City’s John F Kennedy airport to San Francisco on Sunday afternoon was diverted to Minneapolis after a 42-year-old man was allegedly putting the safety of other passengers at risk.
Mark Anthony Scerbo, 42, of Mechanicville, N.Y. è tenuto su un $ 30,000 bail at a Minneapolis jail, after being charged with drug possession, Hennepin County jail records show.
A passenger took a video of the incident on Flight 915 and posted it on Twitter. Dentro, a JetBlue flight attendant can be heard telling travelers Scerbo made “stabbing motions towards another passenger” and was seen “snorting a white substance.” A witness on the plane said in a post on Twitter he “sexually assaulted another passenger.”
Scerbo was arrested after the flight landed in Minneapolis.
JetBlue did not immediately return a Fox News request for comment.
A spokesperson for the airline confirmed the incident took place to Business Insider and said the flight was forced to divert to Minneapolis “after a customer on board began acting erratically and aggressively toward crewmembers and other customers. Il volo è stato accolto dalle forze dell'ordine, il cliente è stato rimosso e il volo è proseguito per San Francisco,” ha detto il portavoce.
